What is the preferred metric for determining how severe a case of spam is?

How should I rank Cialis vs. Chinese knockoffs?

I have reported this as "Spam Level Critical" so hopefully you will get a response.

Oh, this has to do with the built-in spam report system. I'd never tried that button, so the post didn't make sense.

How about this:

trivial - might not be spam or they screwed up, forgot their own links

Minor - typical little spam turd. Enhancement aids. The most common category.

Major - long phones ad / ad with pics / bride slavery / 3-5 posts enthusiastic spammer.

CRITICAL - big and annoying / can harm real people (CC theft for example) / runaway spammer posting out of control.

Actually, I misread your post at first.

I think we need a more severe category for knockoff Chinese brides.

Pretty sure they have lead in their paint. It's a health hazard.
