When flagging as off topic it says:
This post is not relevant to the current discussion as defined by the title and first post, and should probably be moved elsewhere.
When flagging as spam it says:
This post is an advertisement, or vandalism. It is not useful or relevant to the current topic.
Both talk about how it is not useful, adding to the discussion defined by the topic creator, and how it should be deleted or moved. Is there an example when I should flag one and not the other? Does it really matter which one is used?
I know that if a Regular flags a New User’s post as spam it unlists the topic until a mod comes along.
Are there other benefits of using one over the other?
Thanks in advance,
