I am surprised to hear that. When did you sign up? I don't recall seeing any new "complaint" of Y! delay since March when new people were/are signing up every day.

MP admin just confirmed the Yahoo issue had long been taken care of before March 2011.

If you don't want to use a non-Yahoo mail, the words are you can go for the manual verification route as well via "Contact Us" online link over there.

It's down, but not by their choice. Many sites still affected today due to Amazon's EC2 crash.
Amazon’s elastic compute cloud (EC2) is a popular hosting platform for social websites because it provides a cheap, scaleable, generally reliable place for them to live online without having to purchase a floor full of their own servers. But a major EC2 outage today highlights the potential perils of outsourcing one’s own hosting needs onto the cloud: When the cloud goes down, there’s not all that much you can do.

Reddit, Foursquare, Quora, Heroku, and Hootsuite were among the services hit with major downtimes as a result of the EC2 failure, some of which, according to Amazon’s status page, appears to be localized at Amazon’s North Virginia data center. (As of posting, Foursquare and Heroku are back up, and the other three are still down.)
