If you were to try his experiment, you would at least get hammered with spyware,

Spyware is just "bad" software. There's nothing magical about it -- if it's on your machine, it's there because you explicitly installed it.

The same is true w.r.t. trojans. Other viruses (worms) are blocked by the firewall (and lack of open ports).
