I will admit, it's one of the faster ways I pick up on phishing campaigns against our users.  So I'm not entirely against it.

I'm in the camp of not replying to every report.

FWIW abuse at whatever seems to be a favorite in many spammers' lists. 
 
I doubt that's their intent, seems like a good way to draw attention 
to the spam from people with access to blocking lists etc, so I'll 
guess they just blindly harvest web sites etc and abuse at whatever shows 
up frequently. 
 
That certainly doesn't help with the volume, some of that slips thru 
spam filters, it adds up.
