    According to this Yahoo blog post, hardware problems are behind the company's recent e-mail outages. The good news is that the normal flood of daily spam from Yahoo accounts is down this week as well. ;)

    One of their execs made a joke about users "needing a kick in the nuts" before people would start leaving their email service. Well now the jokes on them!
