Keep an eye on them if you feel that would make you feel better. Only if you 
feel uneasy about them.

I emailed the owners of the pages and of course reported the pages to Google 
as spam. Normally those spam reports are not replied back to. Whenever I 
have emailed Google for answers or even Group abuse I have heard back from 
them in a reasonable time.

They haven't stole any of my SERPs yet as they would need more links and PR. 
I don't see them in the SERPs as far as Google...I have to porposely look 
for them.:-) I am talking about the top 100. They have made my SERP look 
better as far as how many pages are out there. Before there were only about 
87,000 pages using the exact phrase rag rugs, now that has doubled.

I do however see them in Yahoo, it takes Yahoo a lot more time to clear out 
spam than Google. MSN is OK, but still shows more spam than Google.:-)

I thought so, but made sure!
