I certainly don't know details -- it was just leaked. The thing that strikes me is that it appears that Yahoo! is choosing to focus on all products with direct and compelling competition, while de-emphasising or closing properties with true uniqueness, innovation, and potential. The loss of Del.icio.us is a real tragedy - that's been a go-to service for me for years.
