Has anyone else noticed this problem? The Froogle newsletter, Adwords newsletters, etc. all get put in my GMail spam filter. I've never marked these as "spam." Does Google think it's spamming itself?

The problem is with that 'Report Spam' button.. Some people are too lazy to unsubscribe from mailing lists or newsletters and will just quickly click to report the email in question as Spam in the hope that this will prevent the email from ever appearing in their inbox again. In this case it appears that they've gotten their way!
