They do look at those reports. If we all spent more time reporting spam instead of posting complaints about it here I bet the SERPS would improve. Who better to spot the spammers than us webmasters who know te tricks? I think we should all be more proactive since many of us make a living off search engines.
Not all of us want to to do Googles job for free. If they can't figure out what spam is, then that's there problem.
They make how much money and have how many smart PHD types working there?
If you want to work for free for Google, please continue to do so, but myself and and I'm sure many others have better things to do.
