[pmwiki-users] blocklist error

This was fixed in 2.2.51: one of the domains providing blocklists for  
download was left to expire and someone else got it and installed some ads.  
PmWiki ignores lines it doesn't recognize, but somehow some lines of that  
page are in the format PmWiki expects.

The other remote blocklist we use had moved to a new domain so this was  
updated too.

If you cannot upgrade to 2.2.51, just disable the use of remote blocklists:  
in config.php set $EnableBlocklist to 1 rather than to 10.
