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 – lunboks 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
