  Yahoo Publisher Network Telemarketing Spam

Bad news / good news: Yahoo apparently decided to use the Yahoo account database for telemarketing. That's bad.

A friendly telemarketing agent working for Yahoo Publisher Network from Fargo, North Dakota called my home number to try to get me to put YPN ads on one of my websites. She claimed she got the info from the "Yahoo Database", but she didn't have my email!?

I asked her what gave Yahoo! permission to call my home number, and she said it was a mistake for them to do that.

What's the good news? At least Yahoo is making an effort to market YPN! Of course, I've already been signed up for YPN for a while, but apparently they didn't cross-check that database.
