[OCLUG-Tech] Yahoo "join" spam

Anyone else getting this sort of crap? I tried several months ago to get yahoo to act on
their "abuse" policy, but they want you to join first! Sort of like having to pay so you
don't have to pay something you didn't owe in the first place. As far as I know, I'm not a
member of yahoo groups.

I'd like to put an end to it, as these "groups" are filling my junk box up. Even if the
filters are catching it, it is costing cycles and storage.
