And the winners are? The spammers.

Here’s a good one: You get spam from a Yahoo account. In the good old days, Yahoo [I’m assuming here] would investigate and [hopefully] kill the account from the spammer after you would forward the message.

As of December 1 [2010 of course], that goes out the Window. You now have to follow a 23 page document on how to send a spam report. The alternative is to report on a Yahoo site – but you need a Yahoo account to get in. Very smart.

The spammers just won.
