- Greetings, and apologies for the cross posting, but since I've heard comments
from folks on both, I thought I'd pipe up with my own two cents worth.
I never had much trouble with spam until I bought an item on Ebay! Ebay
is one of the main sites which internet marketers scan to pursue new
customers. Also, if you've ordered anything on-line, such as I used a
Borders Gift Card, you can sometimes get spam from those transactions AND
since most of those purchases also require that you give a phone number,
you'll also see an increase in telemarketing. (My 12 year old son, who is
very creative, has invented some interesting ways of dealing with these! <G>)
The nice thing about spam is that you have the option of NOT opening the
mail. If the sender is unknown to you, just delete the message.
I really don't think the problem is a result of the Yahoo change, but I
could be wrong.
