A Non-working Technorati is a Useless Technorati

Here we go again! Technorati hasn't been updating posts, links or authority for several days now and there's been no response by admin on their "help" page or from their ticket support system. The problems for me began before Technorati dropped off the web due to the power outage in San Francisco and have continued every since. No updates for new posts and for even a longer time, links to this blog haven't been updating properly - some work and some don't. I don't expect lightning-fast responses her (although that would be nice) but I would like an acknowledgement by Technorati of the problem at least.
So I ask for the second time this year: Is Technorati dying? It needs some major work and tlc to continue as a force in the blogging world. I wonder how long it will be before it gets fixed. If it's too long, it will just whither away as a blogging after thought.... Let's hope this isn't the case.
Here's a screenshot of the Technorati help forums with a pile of unanswered cries for help. No admin response for several days and counting:
