To my way of thinking, that's a bad thing to do; isn't it better to
ignore & hope the spammer will give up.
Also, these spammers tend to use slightly different e-addresses in

let's not block individual domains. Usually, one blocks the sending
server's IP, not the sender domain.
Plus, moderation is all about spam filtering. Manually maintaining
filter lists is a tedious tasks I really would like to avoid, because
you have to regularly verify those lists (who can assure that the IP
not changed the owner to a legitimate sender in the meantime?).
We do extensive spam filtering already with greylisting, blacklists,
SpamAssassin the the like. The spam that gets through is the tasks
moderators have to deal with.
