What's happened to Usenet?

For a little while now usenet has become so slow as to be often completely unusable. Have I missed something? It doesn't seem to relate to time of day. I hope nobody thinks it is P2P.

Google cached versions of the first 2 pages of the removed thread here and here. It was previously an issue with a misidentification of the news groups signature for traffic shaping. You may want to PM abdul for an update; I am not aware of the status of this issue.
