I look at the reason if it is a user and not a spambot. A reported post turns pink for the mods, so if I recognize the spammer, I just delete the post, sometimes without ever looking at the report. Very quick, I can go into a forum and the reported posts jump out visibly. Then all I have to do is decide if it is simple spam and delete it, or if it is a real user issue, which I leave to the others.
