I was surprised to see the jet is blocked on the flightaware app. If he were to fly within about 50 NMi of me I would probably pick him up on my ADSB receiver though.

Not so much. He’s mainly getting his data from OpenSky, which is a private non-profit, which in turn gets their data from volunteers with simple receivers around the world to catch the public transmissions from aircraft. (A Pi-equiv with an SDR and basic antenna would work fine.)
Previously it was ADSBexchange, but someone made the owner an offer he couldn’t refuse and he sold out. The volunteers moved elsewhere.

… why would anybody want to hurt little Elmo
