I think its all just Matt Cutts way of getting people to report spam! LOL
Ha! And what good does THAT do?
I've reported spam on the same blatant violator for nearly 3 years, but he's still ranking both his main and duplicate sites consecutively in the serps, usually occupying position 2 and 3 etc.
Why bother, I've yet to see Google take any suggestion and act on it.
From what I can tell, the spam reports and feedback probably just goes to LCD screens in the Google rest rooms for fun & entertaining break time reading.
Seriously though, with a company the size of Google, you think they could afford a department (rather than two interns) to handle a tiny fraction of these reports. Especially the repeat reports, but that would just become another thing for webmasters to manipulate for good or bad.
