So much for that. Here’s what Google just said in an official Gmail blog post on spam reports:

people are afraid to report a message because they aren’t sure if it is
“really” spam or not. Our opinion is that if you didn’t ask for it and
you don’t want it, it’s spam to you, and it should be reported.
