I had a long talk with earthlink a month or two ago in which they told
me they were not filtering out swen (and they certainly weren't; I got
a ton).  Soon after that, I did see some swen-like stuff in their spam
filter for my account (but I also saw plenty still coming at me).

What's your basis for saying they are filtering out swen, rather than
that you're just getting less swen?
