This site has attracted extra spam in the past few months. As the current case is on English Language & Usage and The Workplace, only 3 flags are required before a spam or offensive post is nuked. Can we have the same mechanism here so spams don't last too long before it pollutes more?

Related: What's with the amount of spam here?

For a list of recent spams caught by SmokeDetector, see here. Note it's possible that Smokey missed some of them.

Note: If this is getting implemented, please inform us (the Charcoal team) before actually carrying it out so that we can reduce our autoflagging number to 1, so as not to unilaterally nuke any post.
