I’m turning frantically mad. Since a month, Technorati doesn’t update anymore my posts on its website. If one follows a technorati tag on one of my post (which links to technorati’s indexed blogs including the same tag), it will show a lists… missing my own post.
It is not exactly a new problem neither : on december 2005, I had already the same issue. I quickly wrote to technorati support, and had to wait… ’till late january to get an answer :
We have been reviewing some of our older support email, and I discovered this one. I’m very sorry it’s taken us so long to respond to you.
It appears that, as you reported, we were not indexing your blog correctly. We had miscategorized your blog, and were ignoring updates. I’ve fixed this, and I’ve manually “pinged” your blog.
Please let us know if you have any more problems with Technorati. And, thanks for your patience.

Things happen. You can loose a message or two, one can be overloaded replying to so many affiliated users. But I wrote about “my new issue” to technorati on late february, and many times ever since then. Never got a single answer. Never found anything about this very well-spread problem on a FAQ on their website. Nothing.
It seems like Technorati had “eyes larger than the belly”, and cannot manage their workload. What a shame, the idea was great, but what’s the purpose of having good ideas if you cannot concretize it ?
I’m going to have to stop using technorati tags…
