No, because *ANY* nameserver which gets the pollution can then pollute you.

Since you can't cut off EVERY nameserver with such a feed, it is pointless
to attempt it.

        Correct.  The proper way to handle this is to install the
latest bind (8.1.1) or 4.9.6 (but 8.1.1 is better :), and it will
make it so folks can't inject bogon data into your nameservers.
