Well, I can get away with a policy of "Friends don't let friends use
Yahoo!" and be ornery about it, so take my advice with a grain of
salt.  But I just blame Yahoo! and tell yahoo.com users (other yahoo.*
domains don't have this policy) to lump it.

But you're right, people do report the difference.  So it depends on
how many users who prefer to post from Yahoo! you have.  (In my case,
most of my Yahoo! users say "I should have got rid of my Yahoo!
account long ago.)

N.B.  You're posting from edu.au.  Do you really have that many
yahoo.COM users that you care about a difference in their treatment?
If the majority of your Yahoo!/AOL users are from a different country,
they may very well *not* have "p=reject" policies.  Eg:

$ dig +short _dmarc.yahoo.com.au TXT
"v=DMARC1\; p=none\; pct=100\; rua=mailto:dmarc-yahoo-rua at yahoo-inc.com\;"

Note the "p=none".  Australian Yahoo! users don't have a reject policy
in place (yet).
