Yahoo Mail Spam

Is anyone else noticing an increase in spam in their yahoo email?
I used to get a lot in my spam folder and 2 or 3 a day in my inbox but today (and yesterday thinking about it) I have had rather a lot delivered to my inbox. Despite hitting the spam button for years on end on the selected emails it seems that their spam blocker isn't actually learning like they claim it will.

Re: Yahoo Mail Spam

When I was registered with several Yahoo Groups I would get something like 2000 or 3000 junk emails every few months.
I have just checked my yahoo email (haven't logged in since goodness-knows-when and there were 4 emails all from Yahoo (2 from 2011 and 2 from 2012).

Re: Yahoo Mail Spam

I haven't had a single spam email delivered to me with my yahoo account, ever. For all I know there could be thousands upon thousands sitting in the spam folder - which I never see because I never log in to the site.
