Believe me, Ihave reported lots of keyword spamming auctions, not a
single one was removed. They weren't even "protecting" just their
powersellers either. Big guys, little guys, they didn't do anything.
I gave up. Just like I gave up reporting those people who were selling
illegal copies of model plane plans. Ebay says they will only remove
those if the copyright owner does something, which they won't, probably
due the amount of hassle it would require.
