    That seems a list of IP ranges used by various govt. and military agencies. I think it is obvious why you would not want to be scanning those. In fact you really should not be scanning any IP range that is not your own.

    I don't know whether that list is reliable or not. That seems like a very shady web site at best, and I would not suggest downloading or trusting anything there.
