    I've seen both occur. It is one of the few "powers" that guides have but we've all been very cautious and sparing with it. I once deleted and banned a spammer, but it was a very blatant case. In anything not so dramatically blatant, I'd report the post the same way any user can report it.

    With around 800,000 posts so far on MP, the admin can easily miss it if no one reports it.

    a question of being really sure, some post look like spams but aren't and vice versa. If it is really blatant I'll jump on it, if I'm unsure I'll use the report button. I prefer to err on the side of caution.
