      Yep....I have all 50 of my filters used up with the way they're "revising" their spam.

      I noticed that spam seems to come in waves.  The spammers come up with a new way to get their messages out, and then it takes a week or two for the spam filters to start learning their ways and catch up.  Happens every few months.

      Maybe there is something different about the spam that you are receiving today that the spam filter isn't "trained" to catch. I would suggest being patient and continuing to use the Spam button to deal with these messages. You can try contacting Customer Care, but I suspect that they won't tell you anything more than to keep using the Spam button.
      As for receiving the same message over and over, that's a good question, and one that the Yahoo Mail staff would need to answer. I have been flagging emails from a certain job listing site as spam again and again and I still keep receiving them.

      For the past few weeks I've been getting a lot of spam in my Inbox
      despite using the the pay version of Yahoo which is supposed to have a
      better spam filter.

      For example, this morning I received 28 spam messages, with 7 of them
      showing up in my Inbox.  This is a 25% failure rate for the spam filter.

      Previously maybe I'd get one or two spam messages in my Inbox a week
      and I receive hundreds a day so that was less than a 1% failure rate.

      Has something changed?

      Also why do I keep receiving the same messages over and over when I
      keep flagging them as spam?
