If your level of spam skyrockets, you can thank Yahoo.
You can set them back by logging into your my.yahoo account and taking the "edit my marketing preferences" link and unchecking the options.
But I'm killing/forgetting about my Yahoo Mail account anyhow, now that they are charging for POP access to the account. Just switched all my "spam heavy" website registrations to my ISP email (which I've never used at all).
"Yahoo! is notifying users of these changes to marketing preferences via email. Your new marketing preferences will not take effect until 60 days after the date the email is sent to you so you have plenty of time to decide what you want to receive and what you don't."
If yahoo want to dish out spam, they are more than welcome, they can dish it out to their own servers, and i will just check in once and a while, when i want to do online questionnaires, that require an email address.
good arrangement to me.
Not only will Yahoo be spamming themselves through my address, but they'll be clogging their mailservers with autoresponses every time they do.
This is fun. :) (Maybe I should go back now and re-set all my spam preferences, excuse me, Marketing Preferences, to "Yes" now?)

It is rather naughty though eh?
What is even better is if you can find the actual e-mail used by one of their employees, so they start getting cobs of spam!
