Google’s Matt Cutts Talks Auto-Generated Pages
 
This is a good video to watch.

Good.

I've landed on plenty of those kind of pages that Mr. Cutts talks about in the video, ending up on a page with "0 results" or "0 reviews" and completely overrun with ads.

Mr. Cutts is right, as an end user it is annoying and frustrating.

Though I really don't see why people need to do that auto-generated stuff in the first place?

This is a really good topic considering how many times I see search results pop up in the top 3 spots for keywords that go to search result pages on walmart, target and home depot that have 0 results returned.

Should I start reporting those pages as spam?

If Google did 10% of what Matt Cutts said, they would be easier to work with.

That's a provocative idea. I would love to hear an example or two and understand more specifically what you mean.
