.biz listings in Yahoo - are they a disadvantage?

I've used .us domains that seem to be doing fine, does anyone know if Yahoo seems to be treating .biz listings with less trust?

The domain extension doesn't equal less or more trust, but can mean filtered due to targeting. If using a .us you will get a ranking boast in terms of US searches as yahoo filters you as a US site, but the .biz by default is not filtered, so traffic and link patterns for yahoo will determine where they think your target is.

Plus CTR is important for yahoo and if the users see's a link with a .biz the user might have less trust and click less which means lower rankings, but the trust level is not at the search engine rather the user.
