Update: A Facebook spokesperson has added, This error isn’t specific to any one account. It’s generated when a person has been blocked a certain large number of times.

The purpose of this system is to protect the experience for people targeted by these campaigns. We’re constantly working to improve our systems and are taking a closer look at this on.
