No bouncing to Yahoo is they sent a message down the pipe and they
did not get the hand shake to say it was received. Since messages are
sent in packets most messages are sent in more than one packet. If 20
were sent and only 19 received then you get one bounce added to your
counter and Yahoo resend the packet. If that packets repeatedly gets
lost then your ISP has an incomplete message and does not pass it on
to you and it goes dead and Yahoo has added a few more ticks to your counter.
Bounces are not rare but in high traffic routes there can be traffic
jams at intersections and some traffic does not get through. It can
be compared to you coming out of a parking garage in a big city at
rush hour. Everything is bumper to bumper in front of you even when
moving. Every time you inch forward but do not get into the traffic
is a bounce.
