Spam Flag Setting Description Mismatch and Functional Question


#1

I noticed a potential typing error in the description of the Spam setting. num_tl3_users_to_block_new_user and num_tl3_flags_to_block_new_user in the description do not match the title on the left. I am not sure which field is for which function.

I am also confused by what it means by “new user” in the description. According to @codinghorror’s post in What do user trust levels do?, the spam flagging privilege limits to flagging TL0 users’ posts. But a user would generally be promoted to TL1 by the time he/she posts. If TL3 users cannot spam flag users above TL0, wouldn’t it make this spam flag function ineffective? Please advise. Thank you!
