Yahoo answers referrers not showing up on google analytics anymore

Hey,

So I was looking at my referrer data on Google Analytics and noticed a sudden drop on Mar 27 and it went to 0 on Mar 29 for traffic coming from Yahoo answers (had steady traffic from there for a long time).

Did a test where I found a question which had my link on an answer and clicked while looking at analytics "real time" report and indeed I was tracked as "Direct" visitor.

When looking deeper I noticed Yahoo answers switched to secured HTTPS format (I think it used to be HTTP in the past) so I imagine this is the reason.

Can anyone else confirm this?

Thanks
