It's too bad that about 1/3 of the reported mails are valid opt-in lists.

Ahh well -- this is a nice mechanism that AOL provides, IMO.

No it can't be abused [by the average AOL user] - when you click the "Report Spam" button the message disappears from your mailbox. I tested this from within AOL version 10.3 for Mac OS X.
