These listings (#1, #3) were indeed false positives. We aim for near zero 
false positives, but mistakes do happen :-(

The cause was a data error which we corrected as soon as we detected it.

Feel free to forward this acknowledgement from our side to the registrar to 
help get the suspended domain unsuspended.
