It doesn't appear to be a bogon, so what's wrong with it?

I am assuming this address is not on the local network? It is not a

the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

And remember:

It is RSofT and there is always something under construction.
It is like talking about a large city with all construction finished.
Not impossible, but very unlikely.
