We can avoid "trusted users" by creating a spam button, that can only be used X number of times in a period, and this period could increase or decrease based on a number of factors. When a post is marked spam, it could be minimized for a specified period, and it's spam button indicate the community has marked it as spam, possibly allow you to "unspam".

There are ups and downs with this system. Bots could game it and non spam could be hidden

The spam button would cease to function for a period of time afterwards, dependant upon different factors, this would lessen the effect bots could have. Once something is marked as spam by enough users, the content could be shown in the sidebar to random users, asking if it really is spam or not.
