Well mailop for one.

I suppose ... there used to be a "Yahoo! mail blog" but I think it got 
shut down.

BTW, another obvious benefit to announcing a flag day would have been to 
give more people time to set up DMARC. I haven't yet (on my personal 
mail server) because there hadn't been sufficient uptake to warrant it. 
Yahoo! telling everyone that they will be implementing it would have 
given people incentive.
