"terais.cloner.wedn.us is not a routeable IP address" -- but it IS routable

Recommended Posts

Spamcop reports:

 
Tracking link: http://terais.cloner.wedn.us/unsubscribe?g=fDExMTgwNzI4fDUyMDAwMA&u=x

No recent reports, no history available
Host terais.cloner.wedn.us (checking ip) IP not found ; terais.cloner.wedn.us discarded as fake.
terais.cloner.wedn.us is not a routeable IP address
Cannot resolve http://terais.cloner.wedn.us/unsubscribe?g=fDExMTgwNzI4fDUyMDAwMA&u=x
However
[jhg@smtp ~]$ dig terais.cloner.wedn.us

ragg.pregit.com.        299     IN      A       155.94.65.6

and

[jhg@smtp ~]$ ping terais.cloner.wedn.us

Why does Spamcop think it's not a routeable address?

Curiously, upon revisiting the report I see:

 
If reported today, reports would be sent to:

Re: 85.206.173.211 (Administrator of network where email originates)

williamsdesigndk@gmail.com

Re: http://terais.cloner.wedn.us/unsubscribe?g=fDEx... (Administrator of network hosting website referenced in spam)

abuse@nodesdirect.com

However, Spamcop did not send send to the nodesdirect.com address originally.
