As for spam, only in case things get worse again and if the system automatically removes spam when reported by some number of people: I'd appreciate it if the 30 second delay between reports is lowered a bit.

(It's quite annoying to see something like "This site requires 30 seconds between submissions" while trying to report multiple comments by a spammer.)

I wish I had more fine-grained control over the anti-flood engine, but I don't. It's one setting for everything, and it applies to the site admin, too. Sigh.

Alright, then maybe you can reveal how useful reporting abuse is to you?

Like if one spammer posts multiple comments, does it help you if we report all the abusive comments (while I assume you'd be looking into the spammer's profile yourself as well, and hence might even be annoyed by reports you already covered)?

Or: does flagging as abuse maybe automatically delete comments when some threshold is reached?
