Why are you glad to see that iCloud is having issues? :confused:
Maybe for peace of mind.
I know it can suck when I have an issue that seems isolated to my configuration(s). At least this way, that user knows it's not "just" their system.

Gave up on iCloud mail a long time ago. It sucks.
This is the first and only issue I have ever had with Apple email. I have always found it so much better than either gmail or yahoo mail. Does a much better job at filtering out spam
