It might help if we differentiate between spam we *see* in actual Google results vs how many spammy comments have been entered overall, in any place. For instance, the separate SearchWiki notes page may be spammed, but these comments won't all be shown by default on the actual results page which most people see. So to evaluate the actual problem for end users, it would be interesting to know in how far these spammy comments end up in normal results. Only then is it "heaven" because spammers want their spam to be seen (or at least be have links be "followed" on crawlable pages).
