<#1) Google is just broken.
#2) Google isn't broken, but this was all done by design to boost Adword sales.
Neither one. Google is not dumb. If they wanted to boost Adword sales why not just leave the spam in the results, unless they are plain greedy, which would be dumb and your theory would make sense.
I'm sure everything being done right now is by design and PFI would make some sense but again, I think they are a little smarter than that. After all, since the time they started G until now they haven't looked back and have us all on the line (by design). Why risk it now unless they want to cash in and retire?
