We've been trying since Friday to submit to the commercial directory and keep getting the same error. Anyone else having trouble?

I have been trying to change my directory listing and I'm getting time outs and errors.
Even the help files aren't linking me to the change form, NOR the customer care pages.

Does anyone know more about this?

Any suggestions on how to get my title changed in the directory?

Yes, we had the same problems submitting to the commercial directory on Monday 6/14. Have not tried yet today.

Beware, the last several times we have had these socket errors, our credit card was charged for each and every attempt that resulted in this error. We had to call and have them reversed each time.

Same here. We got the socket read error and our credit card got hit for every time we hit the submit. What's worse is that Yahoo didn't even show on their end that we'd submitted a site.
