I dont think it matters if they were true or not- Google and every other walled garden uses spam as an excuse, and a poor excuse at that. Anybody can cut down on spam by reducing access- real programmers/engineers/admins accept the challenge of providing quality, open systems. This whole move says to me that the talent they used to have behind the scenes does not work for Google anymore. 

(or I guess just that decisions now come from someone at the top worrying about shareholders, instead of spending their time trying to cultivate the culture that we all admired in wee baby Google)
