It's 216.161.123.79

If they are creating lists by regex / name analysis

79.123.161.216.in-addr.arpa     name = ddslppp79.desm.uswest.net

looks awfully 'dynamic'/pool like... If AOL wants to do something so shotgun like, thats their prerogative. But apart from examining the name, there is no way to tell that that IP address is being assigned to the same customer.
