We are reindexing content on the web to launch this change. This will be accompanied by the usual ranking changes and page shuffling in the index that are typical of weather updates.
Tinfoil hat time: I do run the Yahoo toolbar. And both those domains are private registration.

Now, if they could determine true authority on a topical basis, that wouldn't be such a bad thing, but as it is, these results are too academic for searches shown in the MSN research tools to be very commerically driven in nature.
6 months ago they picked my 301 redirect from one domain to another. now they got back to original URLs.
I'm seeing this too, but mine goes back almost 3 years. The home page shows the old domain in the serps, but new pages on the site show the new domain.
I'm thinking that if Yahoo's changed the way they're treating 301s, this might explain it. The home page still has lots of external inbounds to the old domain that we could never get changed, whereas the new inner pages don't have that old domain inbound legacy.
The hijacking site is completely unrelated so its Yahoo directory title and description are completely out of place in the results.
Something quite wrong here.
Some key terms for my industry doing much better some doing worse, really is about 1/2 and 1/2.
