Right - that one is doing stupid stuff like filtering out spam reports sent
to [email protected] because they contain spam all by itself, without Yahoo's assistance.

Yahoo is only a hegemony among spam havens, not a monopoly.  There's still
freelance havens out there, and they'll go away when SORBS does.

I'm not so sanguine about Yahoo's chances of lasting till then though...
