Is Yahoo Slurp just slow or is it ignoring my site?

Could anyone explain to me this large gap in hits between by GoogleBot and Yahoo Slurp?

Hits by spiders:

Googlebot - 2783+48
GigaBot - 155+5
Yahoo Slurp - 50+33
MSNBot-media - 30+8
MSNBot - 5+8

Like I said in another thread, I have googlebot pretty much around the clock on my site but what the matter with the other spiders? Any ideas?

I see ALL major bots on my site ALL day long...but, Yahoo Slurp will have TONS of them in there all day. Google will have ONE, MSN will have at most THREE. Yahoo is extremely slow at indexing and horrible in relevance to be sure!
