So how do you know it's a Neowin member, and if so who? PM this sort of thing to a moderator please if you are being harassed by a member.
Reading the first post makes me think it's just some kind of spam email (which I also get and is usually filtered).
That IP address isn't associated with any registered member here either.

^ I'm not sure what you mean.
There are 2 different things that happened today.
One -- I got an apparent spam e-mail from a current Neowin member, thru Yahoo. [I do not blame this member ... someone is sending, using his address]
Two, I get an alert from Yahoo, saying that someone in the Ivory Coast, Africa, tried to log-on to my mail account, early in the morning.
I mentioned both events, in case that were somehow related.
Hovering over the Yahoo alert shows this .... I don't question that e-mail is from Yahoo:

So you're getting e-mails from other people you know on Neowin? They must have you in your address book and they are compromised, not you. If that is the case, stop opening those e-mails and clicking on the links, then notify the sender in a different method that they need to change their passwords.
Didn't the yahoo warning say the opposite?

Detection says this is not a real Yahoo message.
And looking at the log-in pages, no one was able to log-on to my e-mail account.
