Unlikely, given the idiocy of some of the entries on the list, as has
already been pointed out.
Apart from the out-of-date listings already noted by others, some of
the entries would be very poor pattern-matches. Some were URLs with
specific parameters defining views or navigation options, which mean
they'd only block a page viewed in certain way but not others. At
least one other had a specific session key in it -- which means it
wouldn't block anyone.
I don't think anyone will own up to being responsible for this
incompetent piece of work.
