Just now I found spam in the tag wiki (suggested edits), but I couldn't flag the post as spam - just reject it as vandalism. Does this vandalism rejection end up in moderator log somewhere or does it disappear in cyber space?

Just curious...

If one of the moderators are in chat, @ reply to us with a link to the edit/user profile and tell us what's up.

Otherwise just reject it. If it's a single edit it doesn't matter much; there's nothing a 1 rep spam user can really do without any peer review (aside from spam in their own profile description, which isn't a problem really). If it's lots of edits, still reject them (on the off chance someone accepts them mistakenly/with good intentions...or bad ones) but definitely ping one of the mods in chat and we can suspend/destroy the account.

Generally spammers are one-off so a single rejection or two is enough. In this case I've gone and destroyed the user though; they were clearly just a spammer.
