Encouraging Reply from Yahoo UK


Recommended Posts

...Wow, considering that Yahoo US refuses e-mail complaints, Yahoo Japan replies in Japanese and Yahoo Hong Kong replies in Chinese, this is amazingly refreshing!

I guess it indicates those other countries have "telecommunications" regulations with specific obligations and consequences for ESPs, a "mixed blessing" to be sure :P Or maybe Yahoo's amazing anti-spam technology in the USA is not exportable/transferable. <_< Or the beancounters' bottom line rules in the world of US commercial enterprise. Or all of the above. Refreshing contrast certainly, but I don't quite find it amazing, really.
