General Message Board
If you are tired of all of this betting spam junk on our boards, whenever any does do it, click on "report abuse" under their name. One of the options for reason with Yahoo, is "spam" which this clearly is. If they get enough of us just giving them our disgust with this junk, they will make them go away as they pop their filthy little heads out of the ground. Let's keep this post bumping up also to keep it in people's faces!!! Thanks guys!!
Happy New Year!

As per usual, Good Post Rigos.
I have sent complaints in the manner described and received emails back from Yahoo. here is a copy of my most recent email complaint - feel free to use it's contents to assist you in forming your complaint.
Yahoo please enforce your terms of service contract as this type of advertising is grossly inappropriate.
In the past, after a petition yielded hundreds of signatures on two message boards, Yahoo did a tremendous job in limiting, filtering and removing the spam and further incidence of this stuff virtually ceased. Part of the enjoyment of Fantasy Sports is the ability to interact with fans all around the world who share a similar interest - it is what makes Yahoo the most viewed site in my day. But with the continuation of this constant barrage of spam noise, I might need to re-think if I want to continue to use the service next season.
I am grateful for the free service provided by your company but at the same time can not abide by the trash that is making it increasingly difficult and un-enjoyable to use. As a frequent visitor and contributor to the boards I certainly recognize that there will always be some level of abuse, but this flagrant disregard is harmful not only to other users, especially minors, but also harmful to the reputation of the quality of services of Yahoo as a company - and it may even be argued potentially financially ruinous to Yahoo should it be proven that the company acted as a portal or gateway for those under the age of consent to engage in illegal activity. Parental blocks will not stop this type or re-directing. Please do not construe this as a threat on my part as it is only an observation in an increasingly litigious society.
No doubt Yahoo's ability to derive and set revenue rates for advertising is directly attributed to the amount of traffic flow generated at the site, albeit the loss of just one individual may be small, but the loss of hundreds, if not thousands, would be significant - especially given the recent partnership with the NHL, such a mass exodus of all of the traffic derived from their Fantasy Sports league could be significant and ultimately detrimental to the relationship with the League.
In closing, love the product and service, greatly dislike the abuse by a few self serving companies and individuals.

Yahoo has already emailed me and said they have evaluated. I have a feeling they got clobbered and realized they needed to fix it. Let's keep this thread going like the Petition to Yahoo. May help just as much. Good job everyone!! Happy New Year!

I have now seen it all. A spammer that actually replies to complaints. Never seen that before.
I do believe I would have to kill myself if I was forced to make my living spamming. What a loser. No self respect at all.
