    According to rejected flag notes, you should be flagging it as spam instead of flagging it with a comment. Flagging it as spam will auto-delete the post after enough people have flagged it as spam without moderator intervention. – Bryan Denny Feb 9 '15 at 14:45

    Those flags show you used a custom reason of "spam spam spam" instead of a built-in spam flag, and the response was to use the spam flag. Are you seeing something else? – Matthew Read Feb 9 '15 at 14:45
  • @MatthewRead Not sure why I didn't see it before, but I have seen the it is spam item now. – geffchang Feb 9 '15 at 15:34

In flag, there is an it is spam item.
