Yahoo Search Assistant Gone Wild
Terrible breadcrumb results killing Y traffic

Anybody else notice the Yahoo seach assistant tool and high level breadcrumbs giving gibberish results? In the past week or so the long time breadcrumb results are showing links like "bluewidgets t6", "bluewidgets v4", "bluewidget tips2008" (which brings up a (did you mean "bluewidgets tips 2008")mis-spelling query and other garbage. These terms have nothing to do with my vertical and are certainly an error on Yahoos part.

I checked seveal different verticals and some are gibberish while others seem OK.

Probably costing me a 50% drop in traffic and sales as my SEO followed the old logical breadcrumbs very well.
