What is web-based spam?  Comment spam?  Wiki defacements?  Or do you
want to stop spam sent via web mailers?  That's their job.  They know
more about their customers than you, and quite a few of them use HTTPS
anyway.

If Yahoo hasn't got rate limits on their "I've got a new email
address" feature, for example, they need to fix it, not you or anybody
else.
