Yahoo's Spam Filter I Hate

Yahoo's got some new spam filter I NEVER ASKED FOR AND NOW AM BUSY WASTING LOTS OF TIME USING where you have to retype a string a twisty numbers and letters. Here's their message about it:
This step helps Yahoo! prevent spammers from using Yahoo! Mail, and helps to ensure that your email will be delivered.

Character string verification technology developed in collaboration with the Captcha Project at Carnegie Mellon University.

Hello Yahoo! Get A Life!

I don't want to spend more time with your spam filter on EVERY email reply than it takes to even answer the email.

Wanna tell me how I make it go away? I wanna make it go far far far away.
