Difference being that Google doesn't seem to care about them doing it unless the NYT writes a piece on it.
After the recent JCP fiasco, I'm expecting newspaper reporters to be the new point of contact for reporting Google Spam. What JCP was doing is amateur compared to some of the other stuff that takes place. For example, the 1,000,000 documents that I've been looking at that sit on host names (multiple domains) and take up 5, 6 sometimes 8 of the top 10 results. Google have a long way to go before they have any control over the more severe spam.
Links? Pffft, child's play.
