According to Marissa Mayer this morning, Google will include sources in its Real Time index via an API. If you spam, Google removes your access to the API... I think it is pretty easy.

It is also pretty easy to spam twitter. God bless retweets too.

I don't think it's easy for humans to define just what is spam (nor is it easy to then algorithmically catch all that). And besides commercial product spam, there's also profanity, trolling and plain uselessness. And a profane remark may be useless to one, and useful to someone else – for instance, what if you're a psychology or sociology student researching an increase in profanity directed towards a certain person? In that case, you may *want* to take a look at darker random souls, you may *want* to see some of the random profanity, racism or sexism that's out there.
