Hi, guys... (Dave, I owe you a phone call; my apologies. We'll chat soon.)

My experience:

ftp shows list of files. The other two give "server taking too long to
respond".
I used ftp.warpcave.com last night.

First attempt: logged in OK, but put got "permission denied".

Second attempt: logged out, logged in, put didn't give an error but
stalled at some message like "connection established" (no byte count).

Third attempt: logged out, logged in, put worked as expected, with
correct bytecount displayed.

An odd set of sessions.

Yes, there does seem to be something going on.

NcFTP 3.2.5 (Feb 02, 2011) by Mike Gleason (http://www.NcFTP.com/contact/).
ncftp> o warpcave.dnsd.info
Connecting to 99.103.244.56...
FtpServer 2.2 ready
Logging in...
Login OK.
Logged in to warpcave.dnsd.info.
ncftp / > ls

[directory listing followed - quickly]

Likewise, betacat.dnsd.info logged in and responded quickly. However, ftp.warpcave.com took several seconds to connect (15? 20?), but once connected, seemed to respond.

As Steve mentioned, Earthlink may be making some hardware changes. I can't get a ping back from any of the three (no surprise more than one), and tracing looks somewhat interesting:

As always, I just really hope that overnight, the Big One hasn't happened, and Cali hasn't dropped into the Pacific.
