I suspect the real problem is not so much for the AOL user given the 
heavy amount of spam filtering that AOL performs on incoming email but 
for the AOL sysadmins who have had to battle the additional offered spam 
load due to this insider theft. Although I have seen some increase in 
undetected spam in my own inbox I would say that AOL is still doing a 
good job of blocking it before it gets to the end user. Todays news 
report on the subject asserts that AOL is blocking  ~2b messages per day.
