SOME criteria for spam.
- Duplicates from people who should know better
This occurs when someone posts a question, and then it gets closed. So they post it again. Willfully clogging up the site is spam.
- Blatant advertising or hate-mongering
This occurs when someone writes "Has anyone else had an incredible experience with product X? Because I TOTALLY have! It's only 9.99 from website XYZ(.com)" Alternately, users write "Product Y is the worst thing ever!" Usually those will be closed as Subjective and ARgumentative, but if a user has done it more than once, it is also spam.
- Not at all programming related
"I really like ponies. Discuss" I'm looking at YOU TheTXI. (I'm just kidding, he's never done that TheTXI: Actually I was asking "As a Programmer, what is your favorite type of pony"). But anything that is not programming related shoudl be closed as NPR, but again, if it is BLATANTLY not about programming, then it can be flagged as spam.
