29 facebook spam friend requests from a couple of days ago

They all showed up in around a 24 hour period, and I just go around to ignoring them just now.  I’m showing the list post-ignore instead of pre-ignore since if you just want to see 29 pictures of 20-something females, I’ve heard there are other sites on the Internet that’s capable of fulfilling that request.

So why not report this?  Well, outside of it being 29 requests and no obvious way to mass-report them, the given choices in their UI lead to things I don’t specifically know:

I would *guess* that all 29 are in the ‘Does not represent a real person’ category, but I certainly don’t know for sure (they could be hacked accounts, after all, I’m not really going to dig into them to find out for sure), and if I’m wrong about some of them, the wording makes it sound like *I* get punished – notice the wording here is blatant *OR* repeated, so even if my intentions are good, if my reports are wrong multiple times, I’m still at risk as this is written.

What motivation do I have as a user to help point out problem accounts?  I’ve already likely taken more time and effort to try and help out facebook with the above than most users would, and yet I’m still left in a situation where it seems clear that my best route is to just leave it as is and not bother with their spam-reporting interface.
