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?

No hard information, just logic. This can't be carnivore, because
carnivore, as I understand it, is passive. And you do realize how many
people aren't behing the 'major' ISPs, right? Those people are going to
see the same lag.

Plus, when the rest of the net isn't suffering, and some part of yahoo is?
Chances are it's yahoo's deal. I'm guessing they installed moderators. It
wouldn't be bad policy to not allow encrypted postings, and how the hell
are you going to autofilter that?
