Forgot my Yahoo password and login help is useless. How can I get back into my email?

I received an email from ebay stating that someone had been accessing my (seldom used) ebay account, and that it was suspended. Their email seemed to imply that my ebay account as being accessed through my Yahoo email.
So I changed my password. I thought I remembered what I changed it to: "GenericPassword01," but apparently that's not it or there has been some other kind of snafu. I have tried various permutations of "GenericPassword01" with no success.
As it began as an anonymous "throwaway" email account, I didn't correctly fill in my address/birthday etc so I can't use that to get the password back. The throwaway account has become my public account for paypal, ebay, amazon, etc. and isn't quite so disposable any more.
