Spam’ and ‘Not spam’ is confusing

Hi, I was going to post this to our developers, but I thought others might be just as confused and a couple of button text changes will help all new moderators.
Here is the original thread.

When prompted to moderate a post, I am repeatedly confused by the use of ‘Agree’ and ‘Disagree’. Its too easy to mistakenly ‘spam’ a perfectly good post, or to approve a spam post

Am I agreeing that a post is valid, and hence should be approved, or am I agreeing with a decision that the post is spam?

In various contexts, I am not convinced the terms ‘Agree’ and ‘Disagree’ are used consistently.


  1. As an interim, provide some guidance on what ‘Agree’ and ‘Disagree’ mean in the various moderation situations.
  2. Change the wording to things like ‘Spam’ and ‘Not spam’ that clearly state what a judgement is.

Spam and Not Spam make a little more sense and I have to think less.

Thank You!


There are already topics mentioning that. For example Unclear options when moderator sees flagged post
