Yahoo Search Unstable?

A WebmasterWorld thread has limited discussion on Yahoo. In the old days, when Yahoo made changes or if there were issues, there would have been a lot more activity, which makes my job hard to figure out if this is a bigger issue than it is. So I start with that, because I do not know if this impact a small number of sites or a nice amount of sites.

The thread has complaints from two different webmasters that Yahoo Search is going to the dogs. A long time senior member at WebmasterWorld said:

12 year old site authority in nitch went poof yesterday at about 4:30 pm. How I know looking at referrals from yahoo on a big term last one was that time. Site is gone still indexed but for all the main terms went poof.

And then a member since 2002 wrote:

On one site :

1. after a revamp of the site and 5 months of constant crawling all Y has to show for is 3 pages indexed, two of which are irrelevant to searchers 2. after several years of crawling the site Y stepped twice in my honeypot in the space of two weeks, go figure

It looks like Y has all but given up.

Clearly, these are two members who know their SEO and have been around for a long time.

We know Bing will ultimately take over Yahoo, so I probably shouldn't be covering this but I miss the old Yahoo.
