I'm happy to say the last three LARTs out of five I've sent to Yahoo about
group spam here have resulted in action; guess they're paying attention
The other two of course just got the boilerplate "not my job" responses.
Point is, it DOES work to complain about spams on the groups!
Here's their response:
