I'm confident that stackoverflow already utilizes voting ring detection logic. High karma on SO is quite valuable, I'm sure there are many that have already tried to game the system, people who are probably a lot better at evading the voting ring detection than the average spammer...

I'm curious how karma on SO is valuable. Not in the "you seem smart i'll give you a job" sense of value, but in the actual converted into dollars value that spammers go after.

It's valuable in the "I'm a leet hacker" sense.
