Yahoo! is full of SPAM | August 19, 2005

Yahoo Member Search is out of date.

I’ve just stumbled across a search result that is totally full of SPAM accounts, possibly created by the at a certain marketing website. I’ve filled in the abuse report like I normally do when I find animal or child porn, or anything else I think shouldn’t be there. I regularly come across SPAM accounts when using yahoo, but never to the degree like this. Yahoo seriously needs to get it’s act together and fix the problems with it’s core services- Search, Chat, Instant Messenger. Yahoo’s recent claims of having a bigger index than Google have been rubbished; Yahoo’s chat service got closed down because advertisers weren’t happy with their adverts being shown to paedophiles; Instant Messenger by itself isn’t so bad, but if it were good enough for everyone, why are there so many addons from third parties ?
