Why sometimes when I create a new Y! email account it takes me back to yahoo.com? pics

This happens about 1 out of every 3 times I try to create a new yahoo email address.

I'll go to mail.yahoo.com, click "sign up," which takes me to this page:


fill out all the crap (which takes time), enter the CAPTCHA, and then click "ok" or whatever and then, instead of being taken to my inbox, it takes me back to this page:


Doesn't anyone know WHY this happens? It's fucking infuriating and seemingly random? Except it's been happening over and over just now so I can't even make the new email address I need. I'm so pissed off right now. And this is the first email address I've tried to create today (actually, I haven't even made one since Friday) so it's not like I'm tripping any overuse filters or anything.

When it happens, I usually just do it over and over (and over) again until it works. I'm just curious if anyone has any idea why this might be happening.
