I have spam and trash filters and spam and trash gets sent to their respective locations, I am now adding all to blocking address, most of my spam count incoming is now < 10, even with this address blocked **Username Protectedfirstname.lastname@example.org ,this slime is now getting through,. Why are yahoo blocked address (spam) getting through even if it is blocked,. Is servers getting hacked into again. I do have Gmail, do I have to leave yahoo to get rid of this problem, this does not happen on Gmail. If you block address with copy and paste, address is inputed exactly same, taking out the @ symbol causes address to be invalid to be blocked, so my other question is that, does yahoo get paid by spammers to allow for their slimy spam to get throug??? is yahoo security corrupted (hacked into), does yahoo even care to fix this problem, seems it has been going for a long time and getting worse, lastly do I need to leave yahoo to rid this problem
You should check out this article showing how the Yahoo Spam filters work. As you can see if the emails are going to your Spam folder the Yahoo filters are working. You can also see that the Yahoo Spam filters bypass any filters or blocks you have set up.
It's entirely your decision if you wish to close your Yahoo account over this issue.
Are these emails that are getting through going into your Spam folder or your Inbox?

If you are using New Mail you can find domain blcoking problematic to set up properly. You can see if you can switch to Yahoo Classic and set up the domain blocking there.
You can just mark them as Not Spam when in your Spam folder.
Spam filters take precedence over any other filter or setting on the account. This means that if an email is deemed to be Spam, it will go there first without being affected by any other filter, blocked address, etc. It's virtually impossible to block all spam addresses and creates a false sense of control when doing so. If junk emails are going to the Spam folder, then all is well. If not, then mark them as Spam.
Thank you for your response, but it doesn't answer my original question, when an address is blocked, how come I still get spam from the blocked address containing different content. I copy and paste addresses so there is no typing error, also the blocked address count does not go up by one and no message telling me that it is an invalid address so I know that it is the same address??? Thank you yahoo help community
I used to delete around 70 spam and 70 trash mails every day, today I am down to less than 10 spam and 10 trash, thanks to address blocking. My address blocking count is 105 addresses so far, and just added five more today and prefer not to let spam get into spam folder at all, if I block them immediately as I get them, I minimize my having to look through my spam mail because some companies I do allow their mail to get through but they send it everyday and I don't need to read it everyday. Thank You all at the yahoo help community

Thank You Scootermobile for enlightening me on spam filter priority, I would not have asked my question four times
four different ways, if they explained it the way you did,
Thank You again
