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.
