CS does have an awful reputation. People still play it, but people still play on Gamespy, on Battle.net and on other similar services. They all have their legions of idiots and denying their existence won't change anything.
CS has a bad reputation, but bad reputation doesn't stop it from being popular. The two are seperate things.

It could be argued. Since you paid for the game you're about to play on Gamespy with, you should have full access to it and do everything you want. On the other end, it is a relatively public program so denying usage would be acceptable.
Either way, Gamespy have to ask themselves:"Is it beneficial for me to do that?"
My answer is no. It is no different then every other existing service, why should they do the effort to do it well? As long as people will be forced to use it and that no very popular alternative is available, there is no reason for them to do anything.
