Unlikely.  Blocklists are used by choice, and blocklists which
either aren't effective or don't have sane policies don't get
chosen often.  (See "BLARS", which even blars was recommending
that you don't use the last time I checked.)  So if someone
tried this approach, the most likely outcome is that those
using it would stop and the problem would evaporate.
