From what I understand of Carnivore (now known as DCS1000) it's a logging
tool more than anything.  It doesn't stop anything from going through
on content, it just logs the content and the Feds come in later and
their box.

Yahoo could be screening stuff themselves just to cover their backsides.

Or, they could just have a lot of increased traffic due to last weeks

As of yesterday, the performance of Yahoogroup's has
degraded from a couple minutes, to a couple of hours
between posting and distribution. It is rumored that
this is due to Carnivore being installed at major
ISPs throughout the country.

Any insights?
