Haha, if you flag someone as a spammer they're automatically silenced for 24 hours without a mod even taking a look.

That's just awesome and not at all open to abuse.

I would agree if someone hadn't figured this out in Sol and seems to be going through everyone marking them as spam for the lulz

Then this person is probably blissfully unaware that they are violating terms and have made a tidy little list all by themselves of what they have done...

The people they mute for 24 hours probably feel peeved... But that person could be booted if the wrongly accused say something...

I'm guessing (hoping) that if you flag people for spamming and log reviews show they weren't, that there will be consequences....

That's for someone just wholesale marking spammers. On the other hand, if you just do one or two of those you could (legitimately) claim you misclicked when you were trying to mark an actual spammer.

um... wat?

I mark people as spam on one account, and still see them spamming on my other account until I mark them there as well. (play with laptop next to pc)

Sure, if you flagged 50 confirmed gold sellers and accidentally clicked the wrong person once or twice, I'm thinking they'd maybe just let you know to be a little more careful in the future and not suspend/ban you for harassment.

There also seems to be some way around this as there's someone called Stevie3 in Alpha Centauri space constantly gold spamming despite several flags.
