Description

I suggest implementing a "mark as spam" button near each post on the forum. After a post has gathered x spam marks, someone on the team should get an email, suggesting the deletion of said post. The post itself might also be added to the email, in order to simplify the decision.

how about new accounts can add comments after a 24h wait? i think i've seen that on other forums.
spammers create an account and start immediately posting, no? maybe a 24h wait would make them stay away?

Unfortunately I've seen some spammers that have accounts that are days, and sometimes even weeks old before they post spam. And it might deter legitimate users from registering as well.

One of those clever spammers that copies text from other posts.
