The rule called GeocitiesRd in the rule set does just that :

I agree, but the new spams generally don't use this tracking system
it's becoming less useful ...
of cake to
detect, and as the saying goes, when there's a will, there's a way.
I even prepared a list of live spam urls to make it easier for them :
When will Yahoo / Geocities stop protecting spammers on their network ?
Only Yahoo can answer the question, and we've already been waiting far
too long ...

I suspect they don't get that many hits and it would not be a good
indicator, If they had
a sizable charge, the sites would be 'temporarily disabled' since the
hourly traffic on
free Geocities sites is capped around 3 megs / hour ...
