Suggestions of trusted spam blacklists I could use to help in some automatic spam rejection?

Hi, folks:
I've decided to write with more advice related questions.
I've been working for days on resolving mail server problems that I caused due to some small misconfigurations, and though that's been resolved as of earlier this week, I want to now work on hardening my Postfix MTA.
I do use Spam Assassin, and many other good things, but I want to be prepared and besides using PHP spam katch scripts to help fool spammers for web page based spam, wich will most surely be a good thing to help me fight spammmers, I want to know about useful RBLs that are trustworthy.
I've used DNSGoodies,
http://www.dnsgoodies.com/
as a useful resource to run a host of tests against my own server just to verify things.
According to that site, I am happily, not an open relay! YAY for that stuff!
Because server IPs were not meant to be hidden information, hear is what I found for my mail server IP, for mail.keithnet.us when running a spam database blacklist check on DNSGoodies.com, and this is why I asked what lists do you folks, or the good folks at InterServer.net recommend?
Hear are the results in glorifying detail.
However, before I end this thread with those results as the last thing in my post, I assume that the blocked! text is due to others who either owned the IP range I have before me, or,maybe that these blacklists themselves seem blocked.
Any suggestions of good, solid lists that you folks have implimented that do not reject too many valid email users, though, is most appreciated!
Results of the mail.keithnet.us database check are below:
This lookup is for the IP: 66.23.229.2

There is also smtp.dnsbl.sorbs.net which is does not reject too many legitimiate messages. I have found b.barracudacentral.org to block a few too many.
