Some one set us up the spam bomb.
The one thing i like about Yahoo is that they have a spam filter so all that stuff goes into a separate folder. and all i have to do is click empty spam folder and thats it. its not perfect though, so i do give a glance at the folder contents before clicking. occasionally something valid will get dropped in there by mistake. but all in all worth it.
the ones that i see that i do find annoying are the ones that use names of people i know. not because i'm fooled but because its kind of disgusting that they would use, say, my mother's name, to try and scam me.
