It didn't leak. Yahoo "features" are opt-out, not opt-in. If you go
to your account for this list and log in, you will be able to switch
all the garbage stuff off. Also take the "plain text" option and set
up your email client to post in plain text. That avoid nasties like
javascripts being attached to your messages by Yahoo marketing.
