Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I guess this is an additional to previous requests like this and this.

But I just came across this review item, and was unable to flag it as spam.

edit: Since I posted this, the item has been removed (deleted) here is a screenshot:

I guess you could argue that "delete" serves the same functional purpose, but I like the idea of marking spam as spam. Plus, it carries with it the special whammy of -100 reputation to the original revision owner. That gives me a warm feeling deep inside. – Cody Gray Aug 4 '13 at 13:39
For egregious cases, I take the time to go to the post itself and flag from there. – Al E. Aug 4 '13 at 14:20
@AlEverett Didn't think of doing that - but I guess that is always an option. I am just wondering why not include the option? It is available on other queues. – Inbar Rose Aug 4 '13 at 14:29
@AlEverett if I can't do something from the review queue, I don't do it at all 'cause I'm lazy – a cat Aug 4 '13 at 15:13
@the: I'm pretty lazy, too, but spam annoys me enough that I'll go out of my way to report it. – Al E. Aug 4 '13 at 21:50
+1 Do want this. – michaelb958 Aug 4 '13 at 21:53
I just ran into a post in the LQ review queue I wanted to flag as spam. It was an audit (and might not make sense to <10k users), but still - I went to the extent of opening the question in order to flag it. – doppelgreener Jun 23 '14 at 23:04
@CodyGray Most spammers are 1-rep users on their way to be destroyed, but there's an important reason to get rid of spam properly and not by ordinary deletion now: the spam filter trains on posts that are deleted as spam, not on posts that are deleted as LQ. I've pinged the devs about this. – Gilles Jul 11 '14 at 11:46
