I got your spam report and it has been removed. Spammers tend to attack outside of normal business hours. Can you explain in greater detail about what your suggesting about a sticky report spam feature?
That people who are not spammers will be unjustly publicly reported. <-- this mostly
Outside of sites involving American politics I never, ever have seen a spam sticky used for bad ends or some sort of "blood feud". And, unsurprisingly, there wasn't a single "bad" reporting of spam in the old forum. Paul and/or Hapdaniel can confirm that.
Spam rarely gets reported. In the old (now deleted forum) there was pretty much only one person who reported spam: me. Paul and/or Hapdaniel can confirm that too.
I will grant that there needs to be a better way to report spam, and I'm working on that.
Yes Paul. Most of those spams from the weekend were reported, and they ended up in the priority queue. Depending on the number of flags, some were hidden, but most were only reported once. There is a threshold for hiding them when they are reported.
