Report as spam button should be the one in bold
Sending an unsubscribe request to a spammer only verifies your address and incurs more spam. Report as spam should be the option emphasized and "unsubscribe" can be in a secondary menu as it is basically useless against spammers or people who send malware.

To the far right of the options are three dots, click on those and in there is an option to block senders. it eventually works because I was getting a bunch with the same numerical sequence in the headers, after a few weeks of blocking the numbers changed to a new sequence. They've stopped doing that but the domain names are still popping up with new headers. If Yahoo would block the domain names it would go a lot further but one step at a time.

AND when you block spam it should actually delete the email as the block option says it will.

I am getting 100's of spam per week where I used to only get maybe 20/week. I have put them down as Spam and they keep coming. Why the **** am I getting so much BS in my inbox?

YES THIS IS SO IMPORTANT AND BEING IGNORED BY YAHOO.
STOP PROMPTING TO UNSUBSRIBE FROM SPAM ! IF I MARK IT AS SPAM, IT'S SPAM!
YAHOO'S OWN SUGGESTIONS RECOMMEND AGAINST USING "UNSUBSCRIBE" FROM SPAM, YET, YAHOO CONTINUES TO ASK IF WE WANT TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM SPAM??
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICAT FAULTS IN YAHOO MAIL, CREATING MORE SPAM!
Yahoo's own Help says it will OFFER to UNSUBSCRIBE if Yahoo "TRUSTS THE SENDER" ??
TRUSTS the SENDER ???? IT'S A SPAMMER! CLEARLY YOU CAN'T RECOGNIZE THIS !!!
