Because the number of people who successfully provide actionable
information without being prompted is vanishingly small and the number of
people who fire off automated complaints to the best guess abuse address
(also without actionable information) is disappointingly large?

Why anyone thinks it's acceptable for the form submission to vanish in to
the faceless support queue is more of a quandary. The form submission
should provide a case number, the individual to whom it is assigned, direct
contact information for that individual and a promise that your report will
receive a response.
