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: (Administrator of network where email originates)


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


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