Yahoo inserting dotted underline links into emails

Wondering if anyone knows when Yahoo started inserting dotted underline links into emails that seem to be based on paid search words/terms? If the reader mouse-overs or clicks on the dotted link, he/she is offered shopping and other links totally unrelated to the email sender? Only happens on text that can be parsed in the email. Not on images. Anyone fighting this battle yet?

Hey RJ,

I haven't personally seen this yet but that's not saying much. I did however just load my Yahoo account to test and couldn't see much. Is this happening on a regular address? Also, I am assuming the "newer" interface, and not the legacy version?
