Am I the only one getting spammed daily by invites to "join yahoo groups"?

E.g.:

"Hello elsa_r.wattsuq[put at-character here]authorama.com,

We have received your request to join the VeteranIssues
group hosted by Yahoo! Groups, a free, easy-to-use community service.

This request will expire in 7 days.

TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE GROUP:

1) Go to the Yahoo! Groups site by clicking on this link:"
and so on.

PS: I've created a Gmail filter to move everything from [yahoo groups] straight to the trash. Let's see if that works.
