It seems it is quite possible to spam via Yahoo! groups. I received a messageI've added you to my jiclo group at Yahoo! Groups, a free, easy-to-use service. Yahoo! Groups makes it easy to send and receive group messages, coordinate events, share photos and files, and more.And this is a 'violation of our service rules'...Because Yahoo! Groups values your privacy, it is a violation of our service rules for moderators to add subscribers to a group against their wishes. If you feel this has happened, please notify us: http://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?locale=en_US&y=PROD_GRPS&page=contactBut a URL with the group name and the abuse type embedded would be way too easy: this is the start of the 'contact us' pages, and you have to select 3 options in a row to select the option 'added to a group without my permission'. I waded through all that and reported the subscribe attempt. And to be sure I would not receive more spam I also sent an unsubscribe request, but that had to be confirmed too...We have received a request from you to unsubscribe from the jiclo group. Please confirm your request by replying to this message.Pfff.. keep your spam to yourself, yahoo. Oh, the spam message via the group was in for me unreadable chinese.
