When I flag an answer as spam, it simply flags it up and doesn't add an extra downvote, previously though I would downvote the question/answer, and then upon the spam flag the system would give it another downvote, was this a bug which has been fixed? Something which has been decided against? Or a bug in itself that it no longer works that way?
I'm not a developer at Stack Exchange, but if I would be, that's how I would do it:
Definitely, positively do not allow Pesky Panda's to downvote and spam.
I'm now going to downvote and then flag your question as spam and get back to you!
-2 was the result, so I hoped they would have disallowed this feature just for you, but what's really happening is that you need to refresh the page to see what's happening
