I'm wondering whats the policy on "hidden" spam. Today I reviewed one of the "late answers".
An OP posts a question.
Someone answers the questions and embeds in his code:
http://cool-webdesign.example.com get your own homepage for just 50 bucks.
The rest of the answer is referring to the problem.
- Flag the post as spam.
- Just edit the spam out.
I went for the flagging. Meanwhile someone else went for the editing out option.
On moderator review I received "declined - a moderator reviewed your flag, but found no evidence to support it". Are moderators just checking the current status and/or the original post that was flagged?
I wondering if I should flag those posts in future or not.
I checked Limits for self-promotion in answers and What are the spam and offensive flags, and how do they work? however they didn't answer the question.
