Mike, maybe it has something to do with the name server, as when I did it at
3am this morning the IP resolved for the url was 184.108.40.206 and not
220.127.116.11 as it was resolved when you (& I) did it 6 hours later. I had
also pinged the url earlier and now, and the pinged IP was 18.104.22.168
earlier and 22.214.171.124 now. Also the reporting addresses earlier were:
abuse at cnc-noc.net and abuse at chinanet.cn.net, and not the chinatietong.com
ones they are now. Do you know if it's possible that Spamcop might use more
than one namesever and if the results from both are not the same IP it may
revert to the no report condition? Just a theory, but as there are many
namesevers there has to be a window of time when some have been dynamically
updated and others haven't yet been. But, as Eddie said, whatever the
case, the parser should be enhanced/(bug fixed) to indicate the reason for
the none resolution. IMHO :)
You seem to be on top of this board, so do you know if my out of sync
namesevers theory has been expounded in prior discussions of this condition?
