Yahoo FBL returns

This morning ReturnPath and Yahoo announced the new Yahoo FBL has gone live. Signups are being accepted at http://feedbackloop.yahoo.net/. Yahoo provides the following instructions:
Yahoo! offers a Complaint Feedback Loop service, free of charge, via this site operated by Return Path. To begin the process:

  1. Determine your sending domain (the d= value in your DomainKeys or DKIM signature).
  2. Determine your selector (the s= value in your DomainKeys or DKIM signature).
  3. Create a dedicated email address to receive complaints, capable of handling a large volume of reports in the standard Abuse Reporting Format.

Additionally, Yahoo is now incorporating ReturnPath’s Sender Score Certified into their spam filtering process.
UPDATE: Those with existing Yahoo FBLs do not need to reapply, the current FBLs will continue as before. However, if you have an existing FBL and want to make changes to it, you will need to do the following:

If you had registered and activated domains during the beta phase of our Complaint Feedback Loop program last year and wish to manage these domains, we encourage you to create an account at:
http://feedbackloop.yahoo.net/
After creating and verifying your account via the online process, please complete our request form so we can link your account to your company’s existing record. The form can be found at:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/postmaster/cfl_app.html
Once your account is linked, you will be able to make changes to your domains.
Note: When creating your account, please provide your corporate email address during the registration process.
