If yahoo can't get their mailservers right then I fail to see how that's
my problem. RFC compliance is a strong indicator of competence and ability
to deal with abuse reports. If you can't do either of those, then why should
I want your mail?

I've seen lots of incompetent large providers - I see all sorts of random
addresses being tried at many of my domains. If they can't manage their
mail system responsibly, they don't deserve to have their mail accepted.
