Numerical domain names

I came across a recent spam that was advertising the site 122233.com. When I paste "122233.com" into the Process spam window, it responds "Cannot resolve 122233.com". However, this resolves to 200.161.114.6 according to ping. Is this a spamcop bug, or is it due to spamcop's internal routing configuration?

I don't think SC has a general problem with numeric domain names - it resolves 13.com, 14.cl, 123.cl, etc. with no apparent difficulty (not that those are spammers AFAIK). The problem might be that 122233.com is hosted by someone who blocks SC queries. Domain Dossier reveals it as Brazilian-hosted with a Russian registrar and (apparently) running no major services. Seems to me like prime territory for such trickery.
