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).

not only on ask boards, but there's also much on the share board, and especially classroom assignments lol.

you can also explain a bit more what to put exactly in the spam report, sometimes you can just say spam, you could also say wrong board if that's what it is, or classroom assignment, etc. ;)
