We consistently get spam of the type:

$HoityToityName has made my$verb better because he cast spell for me. E-mail example@yahoo.com to have \$noun [enlarged | made better].

... Except it takes a paragraph of spam to say that.

The most recent example is (deleted) here and is completely true to form.

A post that has attracted many spam is here.

Can we set up an auto-flag system such that no-rep users who post messages of this type are auto spam binned?

• More spam examples: Why Women Needs So Many Handbags, lots of lovely examples at How Do You Make a Wizard That Doesn't Need a Spellbook?, and in the Grease thread.

• I'm under the impression that a certain number of spam flags results in an answer being automatically deleted. If so, flagging an answer with an email address for spam would be beneficial, since it would accelerate that process for our typical spam answers. May 28 '13 at 2:59
• Yes. Basically, if it's got an e-mail addy in and the user is no-rep, all it should take is 1 spam flag to nuke it. May 28 '13 at 3:36
• +1. I was going to post a similar question with the title, "Anti-Magic Field," since these spam answers are drawn to posts that mention "spells" or "magic." May 28 '13 at 12:37
• The only problem with auto-nuking spam is what happens when a misguided new user, honestly trying to answer a question posts an answer that ends up looking like a spam to the spam-killer script? May 29 '13 at 13:50
• @Pulsehead I think a feature that auto-flagged is the idea, so that it only takes one human to flag a post that the script has identified as "likely spam" to get it deleted. (Stuff can always be undeleted, as well.) Or to phrase the feature request another way, "Can the SE software lower the number of flags required on 'likely spam' posts?" May 29 '13 at 16:25
• @SevenSidedDie Merely lowering the number of flags required is a bit different - auto-flagging would do that, but additionally it has effects like bringing the post to moderator attention immediately. Jun 2 '13 at 1:36
