Yes we could probably mess with ordinary users. But I don't see it
affecting SLA, because the 'spam' marker doesn't seem to propagate to
the server and then onto other users (I can't see testers actually
marking stuff as spam). I'll do some research and determine if it
does propagate to other users. If it does, then that could be a nice
exploit we can take advantage of.
