Yhaoo launched with the idealistic vision of only having Yhaoo approved sites in their index and yet still call it a free inclusion open serps...they attempted their vision by systematically banning totally from their index sites that did not meet their own vision of what they want. This has led to a flood of "made-for-yahoo" spam. Spam that is only to be found in Yahoo since all the banned seo'd sites went out and replicated their sites many times over making sure nobody but yahoo could/should spider them. With Google they tend to perservere with the sites in the hope that they can hit the sweet spot and get included again into the top of the serps. With Yahaoo this was never an option. When youre banned your banned for life. And their you have it. I think its called an own goal.
