If it's repeat spam from the same user, don't bother. Reporting one will net them all.

It's to protect us from a high volume of malicious spam reports.

Seems if that option existed it would be enabled.

Like, the spammers mass-reporting themselves?

The delay is retarded, end of story.

Could still send you 1000 reports... Just take 11 hours something ;)

Simple cron and you guys wake up to 1000 reports ;) hehehe

I don't see why you would be spammed if only people with X number of posts could report.
