Those using eye candies are actually spam in the broad meaning as they use some not really ethical means of promoting themselves like making inexperienced users believe those links were somewhat "recommended" by Google.
In other words using eye candies is not what I would call ethic SEO.
eye candy = not ethic SEO = spam
=> it's got to be axed
simple as that
In google's place I would filter them out in some way for cheating people.
