Duplicate A Quick Way to Improve Effectiveness of User Spam Reports

    In the "Report" box, I'd like to see a "Report as Spam" button or checkbox. When checked, if the post being reported has been made by a user who meets a certain set of suspicious criteria (for example, a user with less than 10 total posts), that post would be immediately removed from public view and sent to the moderation queue for further processing.

    By quickly removing the post - and any nasty spam links it contains - it will significantly improve the appearance of the forum, reduce the chance of an SEO penalty, and reduce duplicate reports of the same spam post.

    Various suggestions of this nature have already been made so I will mark this as a duplicate.

    When I have time to search for the original(s) I will merge them.
