What can I do about this blatant spamming in this category?

http://answers.yahoo.com/dir/index;_ylt=AmoBw73JFb...

And by spam I mean questions like this:

Half the question there now are SPAM. I really don't feel like reporting each one of those questions and answers because I have better things to do. What else can I do?

    Go to the ABOUT tab.

    Click the Suggestion Board link there.

    Find the PINNED THREAD called the Official Spam Battle Thread there.

    Start reading about how many of us are working with STAFF approval, behind the scenes, in an effort to control these known mega-spammers. Often, for these, ordinary reporting is not strong enough, but there are others working with you to try to control things like this on that part of the site.

    you can report them,which i think is yahoo,s job.you do not own the business.

    if you do report,make sure you have at LEAST 2 others report with you.

    your credibility drops as a false reporter many times for being the only one trying to help.

    i went out of my way last week to report one life in danger report and the most vicious answer

    i ever saw.one hour later it was still there getting me mad,only a few it seems can report.

    you know what to do.wait until yahoo makes changes here,until then as The Beatles say,

    LET IT BE.

    thank you
