I recently saw a spam post that had a score of -6, but still hadn't been deleted. 3 spam flags knock it off the front page; 6 permanently delete it. (What are the “spam” and “rude or abusive” (offensive) flags, and how do they work?)

Anyone who has rep to downvote also has rep to flag - so please exercise that right!

Also, if you flag enough, you can get shiny badges. ;D

    Im not sure that post was spam... IAE it had 3 spam flags, 1 offensive flag, and 1 NAA flag when you posted this. Plus I think spam/offensive flags add a downvote to the score in addition to your own downvote.
