While everybody is getting accustomed to the new chat system, there are sporadic test messages being posted outside the Sandbox room. I did the same yesterday before realizing the Sandbox existed. However I'm sure this will occur in the future as new users continue to discover the S.O. sites, and during their first time in chat.
However these test comments can still be annoying when carrying out a serious conversation. Should we flag test comments for moderator attention (for the purpose removal and cleaning) rather than for spam, or just do nothing at all?
I'd like those comments removed including the ones I posted yesterday but hesitate to do so if it will inadvertently cause rep harm to users by doing so, or if it will cause too much unneeded work for mods.
To flag for moderator attention or not to flag, that is the question.
