Put in place a Spam button. Once an account has X number of Spam button reports, acct restrictions go into effect

Such an option could easily be exploited by people known to have multiple alt / burner accounts, which could be used to easily hit "the X number of Spam button reports"

Perhaps it can be altered to tag the spam report with the name of the reporter as well.

As in User X reports User Y for spam. Repeat abuse by multiple alt/burner accounts would show up here.

Also, just clicking a button - like the downvoat, is supper easy, perhaps a spam form that requires some interaction, like the mods have when they ban somebody, so at least if you report for spam, you probably really mean it because you have to make a partial effort. Not something of major inconvenience - but I have noticed some of the ban messages are quite creative and entertaining in their own right.

Also, form a list of improperly-accused-for-spam to be on an permanent-not-spam setting. Earned status.

A "this is not spam" button could mitigate this.

I suspect that you are one of the people that I am specifically talking about.

You have made multiple accounts combining many ( Voat user's names + an insult. ) in the past. Which you then specifically use to stalk, chain downvoat, and harass the specific user named.

We could institute a time limit, that adjusted, to determine how often an account could use the spam button.

Consequences for multi / alt accounts being gamed could be a much more lengthy period between the spam button "unlocking".

How about adding a bot challenge?

I doubt it is a bot problem.

It is more likely a few ((( neckbeards ))) creating multiple "burner" accounts by hand... all on a daily basis.
