Case Study:

Check the below picture for this query in Google.

The top 8 results shown here are spam results.Look at the pattern of the title page carefully, you can easily make out  that these are spam results.

Well, if you just think like that and leave it without reporting, may be we are encouraging such spammers  indirectly to grow bigger and bigger so much so that they eat entire Google search results space on your browser.
