Disposable Addresses - Base name problem

I was trying the "Disposable Addresses" feature. To see how it looks and to get used to it, I create a new email address using a random "base name" and a random "keyword". After that, I said ok, it is a very useful characteristic, but now let me give rise to a real one that I can really use. So I deleted this address.
But, to my surprise, the "base name" was impossible to erase. I now that you can only have one base name, but the fact that it stays forever there once you have choosen it, that was not apparent. Yahoo Help mentions nothing about this: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail/SLN3523.html?impressions=true.

I need to employ another "base name" because the one that I first use is stupid (it was a trial). Which means that, at this moment, for me, the "Disposable Addresses" feature has become useless.

Can Yahoo help me?

    We would like to thank you for your feedback! Currently, Disposable Address base names are not able to be deleted once they’ve been created for an account. Think of it as being like a tattoo for your Yahoo Mail account.

    You can find out more about base names in the Yahoo Help article:

    We’re very sorry you’re not satisfied with the base name you chose, so thank you for your feedback!
