I wouldn't even agree with that, SlyOldDog. From my point of view, user support, spam reports, and verifying automatically-detected spam all get at least as high priority as reports via advertisers. I also don't believe that advertising with Google gives you any special advantage for a spam report. And I've seen the spam-handling process for a while now.
