Do not agree. Can you tell me how a spammer can get any email address
by the web interface in Yahoo ? Yahoo hide all emails addresses in
the messages just to avoid that. Knowing that, the newsgroups are
much more open for spammers than Yahoo.

Maybe you dont know this because if you are the owner of the group
Yahoo doesnt hide the emails, but just for the owners, and I suppose
owners are not spammers (I hope!) ;)
