You are missing the much bigger point. Google has technically banned ONE domain but in reality banned many tens of thousands of totally innocent sites in addition to spam ones. Same if you ban blogger.com: it's one domain, but you nuke millions (?) of sites, yet probably several thousand of them aren't spam ;). So it's a question of fairness and culpability. Not to mention that Google raised the stakes with "spam or low quality." WT* does that mean? Google just told everyone that if you get a free blog on a platform that has "a very large fraction of sites on a specific freehost be spammy or low-quality" your blog /free site will/could be gone too.
Banning Russia and .cn site was a rhetorical question.
