I can't speak to whether their xmpp server has open federator or just to
select partners, but I started getting presence subscription spam from aol
If this happened a few years ago I'd be cheering, but AIM has been on a
serious downfall in preference for facebook (which is XMPP client
accessible, in a limited way, but no federation) for years so I'm thinking
it may hurt XMPP more than help it at this point.
We really need to start thinking about anti-spam.
