All the forum spam is being done with accounts less than a day old. Solution: if an account less than a day old is reported for spam by three different people (who would need to be phone-verified) all their posts would be invisible until airmax reviewed the situation.

there aren't always three people active at the times that forum spammers are generally doing their thing. One person should be enough. Of course, then some sort of contingent measure would have to be enforced along with that, such as making the malicious reporting of innocent new members' profiles a bannable offense.
I generally do like the idea, though.

One would probably be better.
