Google Analytics Spam

Hi, 

Just a quick question that's been bothering me for a few days. After recently applying filters to my Google analytics views to ensure no spam ruin my data, I wondered "Why's google not doing this for me?" 

Perhaps someone out there, more informed than myself, could tell me why I have to deal with the constant battle of filtering spam from my GA data and Google don't? 

We're based in the UK not sure if that has anything to do with it? 

Thanks,

though GA tries to keep the list of spams updated, the number id growing so fast that it may not be able to filter out all spams.
