I love the idea that Google is manually reviewing their engine - it's just one more way that Google is protecting the quality of their search results - the more filters on bad content/spam the better - they should open their whole engine up to a system to a world of raters like the netnose search engine did a few years back. I'm not sure if the engine is in use anymore because they did not have many pages indexed but essentially what they did is allow anyone to rate keywords to web sites - the sites would come up randomly so the rater could not choose the site they were to evaluate - then the rater was given several keywords to rate to the the web site that came up - then the rater could rate how relevant the keyword was. Multiple different raters would have to rate the site before it was allowed into the index. Google should do this!
