Short Description has killed my CTR

Has anyone else had problems?

My CTR since May 16 has fallen through the floor.

I assume this is because of the new short description policy.

It's also very difficult knowing where you are on a day to day basis due to the slowness of the reporting.

My spend with Yahoo is at it's lowest in the last 5 years.

While I would prefer a longer description, I doubt the shorter one should have had a great impact on your CTR. Unless, of course, you really butchered the new description. Keep in mind everyone else is working under the same constraints. I have not noticed any measurable difference.
