Perhaps they take all the spam reports, toss them in a pool of data
(knowledgebase), then index the reports and only if you make it to page 1
will they actually take a look at the report. *smile*
The solution: spam the spam report mechanism. Send a tonnage of bitter spam
reports until it appeals for enough attention. As I said in an earlier
message, being persistent helped. Needless to say, my previous paragraph was

It is possible that, sooner or later, sites in the east will hijack
westernised (English) SERP's. They have the capability to replicate and spam
without getting caught quite so easily. Add the fact that the Chinese have
many reasons to dislike Google. Google helps the communist government
rewrite (or mask) history. How can /anyone/ turn a blind eye to this??
