Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
We just have to deal, I guess, with the fact that when they are processing the monthly approvals, the whole system slows down. Happens every time, but this time I just wanted to pre-empt too much sweating over slow response today.
And your name is close to me, Sox (I'm originally from Boston).
If this tidbit of info comes true, I'll shed a little light, but I don't want to seem like some false prophet or anything. I just saw people already sweating over how slow AS id running today, and I believe this is why.

I think bakedjake's explanation in msg #13 in MSN Search Down? [webmasterworld.com] about Akami being the cause of the problem is more plausible. I shudder to think that Google approving AdSense payments could bring the Google SE, Yahoo, MSN and other unrelated sites down. ;-) Then again, that problem could be unrelated to the AdSense problem.
The lag for yesterday's data was very long so your birdie could be right. ;-)
