Is Technorati dying on its feet

Since the revamp of Technorati several months ago the service has been decidedly dodgy. There are thousands of blogs who can no longer claim their blogs, automatic ping's no longer seem to work, widgets are not recording links, post updates are not working and mass problems are visible on the support forum all complaining about the same things.

Did Technorati get it wrong, did they not test the new system extensively enough before release, is the system overloaded, or are there external pressures, as some have suggested, from governments to limit the effectiveness of some the blogs, especially those politically centric ones that many government agencies would wish would just go away.

Whatever the problems, Technorati needs to make a public statement as to the health of its systems, as many blogs rely upon the rankings provided by Technorati for their advertising revenues, as well as getting their messages out.
