No. From my experience, this does not mean you are an available open proxy: the 200 is misleading.
The response size is always 6962, which is most likely to be your homepage (check against normal homepage requests), the exception is the jsp file request, which is responding with a 404 due to journals/query/subscriberSearch.jsp not existing on _your_ server. If they had requested a file that did exist on your server, for example mylogo.gif this would have returned that file (tested this on my apache 2.0.48-win32 server).
Situation: your server is not being used as an open proxy and the request is being parsed so that http://xxx.xxx.etc/ becomes / returning files from your server, not the remotes as presumed.
This is happening to many, do a google on "GET http://www.yahoo.com/" to check out what others have to say.
