Yes, Ken. Earthlink used to have a bad problem with usenet spammers.
They got a bad reputation. Then the organized an abuse reporting desk
and started processing the spam reports, and getting rid of people who
broke the rules. See 2(m) of Earthlink's Acceptable Use Policy; they
expect you to abide by the rules if you post to usenet and the
Briedbart Index is one of those rules. They can drop your account for
failing to follow their AUP. When they had their problem with
spammers, they were dropping 100 accounts a week. I don't know how or
whether they've relaxed from that since that time.
