Perhaps we could have a spam reporting policy that works something like this:
If a trusted user (meaning perhaps a user with a certain level of points of higher) reports a new post (created in last 24 hours and having 0 replies) as spam, then the post immediately becomes invisible and will remain so, unless a website administrator (like Steve) manually overrides the spam flag.
Something like this is good, but I'd take it further.
If the 'spam account' is new (created in the 'last 12 hours', say), their account is disabled.
To have the account re-enabled, the user has to request it (manually).
An admin reviews the requests for re-enablement (excuse the made-up word) and actions as necessary.
