First off AOL uses Google search results. it doesn't matter if you rank number one on Google, MSN, Ask Jeeves because Yahoo is not Google, MSN or Ask Jeeves, they all are different in the ways they rank web sites.
I am #2 in Google, MSN, Ask Jeeves, AOL and more but now Yahoo drops me for no reason, other than to force me to buy their new products.
Yes, I think you are paranoid :). They likely added weight to a factor that your web site is weak in or you are using Spam, linking to a web site that Yahoo thinks is Spamming. As it's been said before, you need to relook over your web site very carefully and see what is going wrong.

My site was doing very well at the end of March (the log curve was on the upswing) and then coincidentally they release a bunch of new "products" like Site Match...I may be off topic and paranoid now, but I can't imagine this is algo related at all.
