How to properly deal with spam posts

Let’s say you come across a post on Ask that looks like this:

What do you do? Should you do something about it? Should you bring it up? Should you go flip a table in anger? That’s what I’m going to explain today.

The process

First, begin by asking yourself, “Am I a moderator?” If the answer is no, follow this simple guide:

1.) Report the post

That’s all you need to do. Don’t add a comment saying “Stop spamming” or “Stfu this post sucks”, that can only lead to more toxicity. You already know it’s intentionally spam, they probably know it as well. No need to make a huge deal out of it.

If you answered “Yes” to the first question, then you should already know what to do. Just do whatever you did in training or something (I’m not a moderator).

Would you consider school assignments spam? I am always confused about that because I heard that that is not allowed but at the same time, I do not see what is wrong with posting your school assignments.

@EpicGamer007 Not really. This was targeted towards people who are intentionally causing chaos and posting *pointless* stuff. Those posts have a purpose.

@EpicGamer007 It's because you can just send the repl link. It's like publishing your math homework in a algebra magazine and buying a copy for your teacher— you don't do it.

@EpicGamer007 Yes, its fine. If we think it's wrongly reported we just trash it.
