It's very interesting to me that there are several threads filled with complaints about these so called "sewer" sites going on in the adsense forum, but there are no threads in the AdWords forum where the advertisers are complaining about them.
Why should they complain? They can just opt out of content ads (as many have done, to judge from past threads on that forum).
As for Google, it's too early to know if it sees a problem or how it chooses to deal with the issue of "sitescrapers" and "content spam." But off the cuff, I'd guess that Google is giving careful thought to the issue, if only because the company must have learned a few lessons from playing whack-a-mole with affiliate and e-commerce spam.
