Most large and small ISP's in AU use them, probably because they are AU 
based, and yep I know Matt/Michelle. I've never seen a FP from them in 
the 8 years or so I've used them, here, and commercially.

I'm not saying this is the first FP, there very well may be a valid reason 
here, just we don't know it, I am aware of the listing criteria they have 
so I'd be satisfied whatever it was, was spam.

The list server has several lists, someone may have tried to sub to one 
of them using a SORBS spamtrap address, someone may have spammed using 
another list, maybe anti spam filtering at your local (and mine) caught it 
and subsequently we did not see it, who knows, way too many factors
