I think they have been doing some major upgrades recently and were expecting some bugs to crop up - perhaps they were fixing a few.

I still fail to see why people have to report when other sites are down. It happens, its life with computers.. get over it. We don't need to waste bandwidth and space on our site to report such things..

It reminds of the time that one of my coworkers sent out an email saying that the internet was down and she had already contacted the helpdesk about it. It turned out that she couldn't get to Yahoo...
