    These spammers

    Yahoo has no reason to do something about it. Remember that Yahoo sells advertising. Part of the sales pitch is the number of hits they get. The spammers add to the number of hits and the activity of the message boards. (The metrics do not distinguish between spam and non spam -- just the number of messages posted.)

    Now if some web site posted a signal to noise ratio for the various message boards and the rating affected Yahoo's revenues then they would take an interest.
