"Is there a definitive list of Blackhat techniques?" Anything to deceive a Search Engine is black hat. The list could be endless.
Agree with @Joe's answer, but here are some links which maybe of use Google's spam report page - this includes a list of "problems" and the quality guidelines at the bottom of this page
Surely if it is a good-quality stats package, it would deliver accurate results regardless of whether it's JS, image-tag or log file-based?

The best way is to use a program like XENU's Link Sleuth to mine their backlinks to look for suspicious links and other black-hat tactics. If anything is not in line with Google's webmaster guidelines then you can report them. With the release of the Penguin update from Google, hopefully it will only be a matter of time before they get spanked.
