so why is it that I get almost no spam to my earthlink account and I
don't see continuing, loud, unhappy noises like this from earthlink

1) Luck coupled with scale. I *do* get spam at my Earthlink account,
but not nearly as much...
2) AOL has a concept of being visible online in the service. Much AOL
harvesting is done by collecting screenames from chat rooms.
