Currently, we have two categories for flagging of posts that should be deleted ASAP: "spam" and "rude/abusive." Posts so flagged get the bum's rush on out of here as soon as possible. Other flags (other than "moderator attention") go into the standard "when we get around to it" hopper and may never be deleted.
What do we do, then, about this kind of answer? I quote it in its entirety:
lay lay lay lay lay lay lay - all the way
Although one might argue that the poster is making a good-faith effort to answer the question, it seems not to be a very serious effort. In my view, it's more than a "not an answer" flag should handle. I would characterize it as trolling or vandalism. It is just a deliberate waste of everyone's time.
Is it possible to add a "vandalism/trolling" flag reason with automatic escalation such as happens with rude/abusive and spam flags? Or at least to broaden the definition of "rude/abusive" to include those offenses?
