Recently one of my Yahoo accts was compromised. Mail was sent all over

I don't particularly favor Yahoo and would like to get rid of the acct
alltogether. How?

Open a new account with another company (GMail, etc...)

And how is an account compromised? Why pick on me? FWIW I changed the
passwd.

Maybe by using a weak password or by leaving your session opened. Try to
harden it for the next time and do not use the "remember me" option.
