For the past month or so, we haven't been able to hide spam threads and posts. I would like to see this ability come back so that when spam is posted, it can be "deleted" immediately instead of having to wait for a staff member to take care of it.

I agree we need this the held feature really came in handy for hiding those spam threads till mods could get to it.

Just an FYI, we'd made this as a "quiet adjustment" for trial purposes - we noticed an increasingly high number of posts/threads were being hidden by members as spam when they should not have been, which sometimes made quite a mess for moderators to clean up. The trial was (and is) to see if it makes more sense to leave spam for moderators because it might be quicker to have moderators dealing with a larger number of spam posts than it is to have them dealing with cleanup from false positives.

We've not made a conclusive decision yet, so you're every bit as likely to see this come back as you are to see an announcement that we're restricting it in the long term. Stay tuned.
