Problems Verifying site in Bing Webmaster tools

Is anyone having issues getting their site to verify and stay verified in Bing webmaster tools?

I'd done it 6 months ago, no issues, decided to log in today to see what bing has been up to and it said my main website was not verified. So I double checked all the verification procedures, and clicked verify... and the darn thing times out constantly.

Gives me this error message:
Timed Out
If you were adding a site or sitemap, we timed out trying to talk to your site. Please make sure the web page is up and visible on the web. If not, this may be a momentary issue; try again, or check back later.

Are they not verifying sites anymore, is bing webmaster tools going away?

I've been trying to get one 5 year old site and two 10 year old sites with hundreds of links into Bing since April. I was able to verify sites but I don't get crawled and I don't get indexed.

Something is very wrong over there. I knew something was weird when not only were my sites not being crawled but I continued to receive new copies of the Welcome to Bing WMT message everyday for months. Using Bing WMT is like pushing buttons that aren't actually connected to anything on the back end.

We got ours verified some time ago, but checking it yesterday, said it wasn't verified anymore ... Now I cannot get the thing to re-verify.

Something is very very wrong.
