How dumb is Yahoo!?

So how dumb is Yahoo!? Yesterday I went to my ISP email inbox to check the spam trap and found two false positives languishing in there. Why? Because they came from Yahoo! and at the bottom of each message was the usual Yahoo! advert. Which read –

Yahoo! Mail – Tired of Vi@gr@! come-ons? Let our SpamGuard protect you.

Naturally my eager and very specific spam filter took exception to the really stupid use of the V word. Sheesh! Someone really needs to get a clue in there.


  • Use Gmail (google mail).
    Great spam filter and the storage space increases daily.

  • @H_C: I don’t think you got the gist of the article. it’s not about using the right spam filter it’s about yahoo being stupid to put a “spamtagged” word in their anti-spam ad in their outgoing mails..
