Somebody asked the following “question”:
Clearly this is just a troll post so I (and other users) flagged it as spam. The spam flag was subsequently disputed (which I think simply means that a moderator rejected it):
Huh? Puzzled, I took another look at the list of possible flagging reasons:
I am flagging this question because
- it is spam
This question is effectively an advertisement with no disclosure. It is not useful or relevant, but promotional.
- it is offensive, abusive, or hate speech
This question contains content that a reasonable person would deem inappropriate for respectful discourse.
- it is a duplicate...
This question has been asked before and already has an answer.
- it should be closed for another reason...
This question does not meet this site's standards and should be closed.
- it is very low quality
This question has severe formatting or content problems. This question is unlikely to be salvageable through editing, and might need to be removed.
- other (needs ♦ moderator attention)
This question needs a moderator's attention. Please describe exactly what's wrong.
Of these, only a few are applicable at all: “spam”, “should be closed for another reason”, “low quality” and “requires moderator attention”.
- it shouldn’t be closed (it has no value – it should be deleted),
- it’s not “low quality” (the description seems to fit actual, albeit bad, questions), and
- it doesn’t require moderator attention (I certainly didn’t want to bother a mod with this worthless post).
So I still think “spam” is the most fitting reason. Maybe it would help to have a more apt reason “troll post”, or maybe we could explicitly subsume this under one of the other points?
