Here's a quick-and-dirty breakdown of spam received (e.g., not blocked)
at my primary addresses thus far in 2015:

      count   source
      -----   ------
      1301    total over MAGY
      -----   ------
      2245    1495 other assorted sources, mostly snowshoe
      -----   ------
      3546    total

So, roughly 1/3 of the 2015 spam that was addressed to me and made it past
my filters came from MAGY -- none of whom have answered an abuse complaint
this decade.

I typically get about 200-300 per day pre-filter (I don't have any blocks in 
place, for science), and very little of that comes through MAGY.   So the only 
conclusion I think you can realistically draw from this analysis is that MAGY 
are a spam problem for you because of the positive reputation that they have: 
mail from them is so much more likely not to be spam than to be spam that the 
occasional spam message that comes through them gets a higher score than it 

This would seem to be an indication that they are spending their admin money 
wisely, not foolishly.   Yahoo, the worse offender, is delivering about three 
spam messages a day to you.   That's _minuscule_.
