Yahoo warning in organic results

Has anyone seen this before? Hayley just noticed it. A number 1 organic result being highlighted as an email spammer!

What’s especially interesting is that Yahoo chose to tell you they are a spammer rather than give them a penalty or ban them. Initially I thought that’s crazy… but actually it’s quite clever. It is disruptive. It demands action from the email spammer. Not that Yahoo have historically let sites back in their good books once punished.
