People out there who use Yahoo services (like email and egroups), better read this MeFi thread. Then, log-in to your accounts ASAP and change your “marketing preferences.” Be sure to uncheck the “mail” and “telephone” options. I also strongly suggest removing references to alternate email addresses which you may want to keep spam-free.
I know the company needs to make money, but that stank. Ever since they cut off POP3 access and Geocities FTP, I’ve begun distancing myself from them. I’m just glad I’m getting good hosting and email service from here already.
