If you have a static IP, there's no reason you shouldn't.  You probably won't
end up on any dynamic IP blacklists, and if you do, it should be easy to get
removed.  Your situation is much different than someone running Linux who 
is dialing into the same IP pool that a bunch of worm-infected windows 
spambots are using.
