Hello, Dandelion Sprout here, the maintainer of Dandelion Sprout's Nordic Filters and an adblocking enthusiast in general.

I'm curious about the lists in this repo, and in a good way. Can you guys confirm that the lists in the «Core» folder are your own work? And if no, which lists were they sourced from?

You see, I'm not the biggest fan of compilation lists of the kind that is in the «Block» repo, but I'd be much more supportive of original lists that shows independent work, and for which it'd also be easier to resolve false positives as well. Plus it'd also stay clear of the kind of licencing issues that caused Energized Blu Go to be removed from uBlock Origin after ~4 days half a year ago.

Hey! It's nice to see you here!

Yes. Core list is being maintained by me and the core members of our team. The craps I face while surfing through the net, I enlist them here. And, there is also another Scam, Fakes and frauds of Internet URL list gets merged with the main list on every new build of core hosts, maintained by Torsten Jahnke (Founder and inventor of keweonDNS).
So there shouldn't be any issue maintaining false positives as the core lists get updated everyday.

About the license issue, I think it should be fine now. We changed it to MIT.
