Npx hardhat verify stalls out on "waiting for verification result"

npx hardhat verify --network rinkeby 0xfa0efcD39f4480273a80F734F3597C99B62908e8

for verification on Etherscan. Waiting for verification result...

Now it doesn't do anything and just waits forever for the verification result. No error message, nothing. Very frustrating.

Ah!!! Ok, so it is not just me! Yep, this has been happening to me since yesterday night!

The weird thing too is that my Etherscan API Key shows I've had no activity in the last week even though I've verified many contracts since...
