Google Commence the Battle Against Scraper Spam

Google have announced that scraping content is bad and SEO consultants should not advise scraping as a strategy. Black hats beware...
Purely scraped content, even from high quality sources, does not provide any added value to your users. It's worthwhile to take the time to create original content that sets your site apart.
They even offer the following advice to consider when choosing an SEO consultant..
Choosing the right SEO consultant requires in-depth background research, and their reputation and past work should be important factors in your decision.
Cleaning the scraper spam, out of Google's index has to be a mammoth task, I wish them the best of luck.
