The traffic on firebird-java is very low, but last week there was one 
such message and the moderator tools were behaving a bit odd.

Given similar problems have occurred with some frequecy over the past 
decade, I wouldn't necessarily blame it on Yahoo having been bought by 
Verizon (not Verisign). I would assume that the maintainers/admins of 
the platform continue to work for Yahoo, now as part of Oath (the 
umbrella company of Verizon that 'contains' Yahoo).
