Bubble Spam

By Gary R, in , posted: 20-Nov-2007 12:30

Since the Xtra!Yahoo bubble upgrade the spam in my inbox has been out of control with at least 200 spam messages a day sneaking through. I estimate that 95% of the spam is in Russian so surely a simple spam filter feature would be 'do not accept any emails that are not in English'. Seriously I can not read Russian, all I understand is English.

At the moment I have to clear my spam once a day, otherwise it really gets out of control. I never had this problem before my account was 'bubbled'.

Have you thought about learning Russian?
