Why is Yahoo Messenger full of spam? I see every day at least 5 requests or messages from strangers that are profane in nature. I don’t see that problem in Gchat (Google chat) or MSN. Why is Yahoo so vulnerable?
You might participated (subscribed) in some forums or yahoo groups which leads to have many spams. You can block those accounts and remove your email from groups.
Yahoo messenger seems to be the most popular so it has more spam targeted at it for a greater audience.
Just use skype, or block all strangers.
not on Y messanger, but even Yahoo email is full of spams.
Why don't you switch to gtalk, or better Skype?
I think Yahoo Messenger is more popular than majority of chat apps. This could be the main reason.
