    DD Crash Predicted = Automated Yahoo Spam Feed


    The 'DD Crash' post is an example of how spammers have taken over the Yahoo boards. Spam support posters like coral.elliot can feed the system every 2 to 3 seconds for about a minute in an effort to build the thumbs-up number. Then they apparently change their id and go again. Perhaps if yahoo limited posters to 1 post every 10 minutes or so? I suppose the spammers would then just change their name every few seconds. At least it would be more work for them. Many sites have gone to a code verification before accepting entry. Yahoo is going to have to do something. The spam load is outrageous.
