Duplicate Remove username as warning flag in identifying spammers

The username just isn't a very reliable flag when trying to identify spammers, and the result is that a lot of legitimate users (e.g. bob, lisa, jeremy, peter) end up in the moderation queue (unless I increase the number of warning flags required from 1 to 2, which would make this anti-spam feature much less effective).

So I will propose that either the username is removed as a flag completely, or at least there should be an option to remove it.
