Is there something funny about yahoo's "We're taking a breather..."

I only get this message when I am answering questions about Obama. WTF. Is it all in my head because its happened about 4 times today? How much coffee can they drink.....

    There are several reasons why these Breather messages appear, and hear they are:

    1) You already reached your daily limit to answer questions.

    2) There are the same links in in several Q&A's.

    3) While you were writing down your answer, the question was removed.

    4) There are more than four links in your answer.

    5) You voted too fast

    6) Your Y!A behavior is similar to a Spammer so you are being blocked

    7) You have been on the system too long

    8) Your browser's cookies are sending the wrong info

    9) You used the percent sign or the plus sign in your answer.

    10) You have been on the answer's page for more than three minutes without doing anything.

    Hope I helped!

    Yeah me too! try putting up a short answer like this.

    Then go back and edit and put in your real answer like this:

    If all 13% of the Blacks in America vote for OBAMA and all the college students vote for him and all the Puerto Ricans vote for him he still won't have enough to make 40% of the vote

    Yahoo Rest a lot except when it comes to banning innocent people because they don't agree with them, then they are quick in the draw.

    When I post an anti-obama post.... they "take a breather"

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed.
