Earthlink webmail-spam explosion

I've been using earthlink forever it seems, and I have noticed in the last month or so, the level of spam that shows up in my webmail has increased dramatically. I been using the "medium" setting for Earthlink's SpamBlocker. I looked around the Earthlink support site, but did not see anything that looked like they had changed any spam filtering. Anyone else notice this?

I use "medium", also, as I depend on email to connect with clients and don't want to put the hurdle of requesting that authentication step in front of potential new income. Also, I get mailing list digests and other machine-generated mail that would not get through that step. It's good to be able to catch false positives in "known spam" and send them back to inbox, then on to my POP email clients. I just noticed what seems like an uptick in truly spam in "known spam" the last day or so. I don't think it has anything to do with Earthlink changing filters as they don't silently delete anything in "medium", afaik.
