Yahoo, shmahoo...

No, it is not just that their servers suck and that the e-mails get rejected several times before you succeed to send them.

It is not that they employ now a diabolical spam fighting "word verification" system that wastes minutes of your precious time to identify the stinking text and to write it correctly.

It is not that they are not the only ones fighting the spam. Gmail does too, and their response time is marvelous most of the time. And they are free.

It is that they do not want to recognize the problem publicly and do not respond to user's complaints at all or take a few weeks to do so. And that to their "premium", which means paying, customers. That really sucks.
