I think they put their resources mainly into chasing click fraud.

If that is so, I will straightaway get into building a couple of sites stuffed with keywords..I can safely assume I would not be banned.

You have been told a million times not to exaggerate. :)

Maybe they were kicked, but just didn't bother to remove the code and the website is abandoned?

Don't you know that odd numbers are the way to go [webmasterworld.com]? He should report them 99 999.95 times!

But seriously, flooding Google with reports won't help them. Sure, report each violation you see, and be as constructive and informative with each report as possible. Make it so the reviewer can simply verify what you have said and press the appropriate big red button. If they are still in the program, this likely means one of two things:

1) Google has yet to review your report. Multiple reports won't (well, shouldn't) help speed the process.
2) Google has decided to keep them in the program. Maybe they are just inside the boundaries of the TOS, or maybe they are making Google a whole bunch of money. Flooding reports won't help here either.

Perhaps it is like moltar said -- maybe they have been kicked. The bottom line is that it is more constructive (and probably more healthy) to report-and-forget, and then concentrate on making your own sites as good as possible. It's not worth stressing over.

It's good to know that some of us still bother to report scum.

Be patient, it just takes a while sometimes. I reported a case of TOS violation three weeks ago. And today was the first time that I see this violation fixed. I'm sure google reacted to my complaint and now his website is fine.
How long have you been trying?

Assuming you're serious, I wouldn't risk it. After all, you'd have no one to blame but yourself if you got kicked out. It's like cops and speeding tickets; they don't ticket everyone, but if one is ticketed they can't claim as a defense that others were also guilty but not ticketed.

Keyword stuffing is a search engine issue, not an AdSense issue.

BTW, I've seen picture sites get AdSense ads with just a page title and a picture title set to <h1>, and another did some trick with an iframe, so don't think picture sites can't get ads as it's simply not true.

I bet the back button on the browser takes care of those k/w stuffed pages better than Google ever could. They can't be getting any kind of clickthru rate even worth mentioning.

They'll probably ban you for spamming them with reports 99,999 times :) Or for being a "tattle-tale" :)

As Incredri-Bill said, that is a search engine issue, not an Adsense issue.

"Keyword stuffing is a search engine issue, not an AdSense issue."

Can't agree with that Bill...

"Site may not include:..."

"Excessive, repetitive, or irrelevant keywords in the content or code of web pages..."

Looks like an Adsense issue to me...

Picture sites are ok. I have one that has more photos then words and google looked at it and send its fine.

IT uses JAVASCRIPT to stuff the keywords FOR ADSENSE.

You miss my point.

Keyword stuffing was a SE issue long before AdSense came around so rat them out to the SE dept. to deal with as it's not as big an AdSense deal as "CLICK THE ADS" and other nonsense going on and probably went to the bottom of the heap.

Gregbo, I was not serious. I was actually countering the point that if that was indeed the case, everyone will be busy stuffing keywords.
