It could be "fat finger" syndrome: Gmail, for example, puts the Report
Spam button next the Delete Message button.  I wouldn't be surprised
if Yahoo! does the same thing.

Why 23 times and not remember?  I would guess that she marked all the
messages from your list for deletion, and missed the Delete button
just this one time.

If she says she never makes mistakes like that, *shrug*, go ahead and
believe her and write it off as gremlins.

Well, if it seems to be specific to any of the major services, you're
stuck, because they only tell us what they want us to hear.
