On the upside they do have a working abuse account, unlike some other big companies. Reported details of recent abuse of one of our servers to 4 companies via abuse addresses. Appears 2 of those big companies don't have, or won't respond to, "abuse@". Yahoo were one of those that responded. I got replies (I tried twice) asking me for the emails that were sent, when I reported it was being used as a drop box account for other peoples PayPal details. When I checked the email address is still accepting email <sigh>. I was pondering writing an article on why this is making the Internet unusable.
