Orkut Added [Anti]Spam Folder in Communities

Orkut finally considered increasing amount of spam and now transferred job of fighting against it to community owner, co-owners and moderators.

In recent development they added a spam folder to communities as shown below…

Now whenever you find a spam topic, click on report spam button on orkut and the topic will be moved to spam folder.

You will see a confirmation like below then…

Spam folder will look like below…

Now when a community owner, co-owner or any moderator will click on a spam topic, he will see options like below…

Seems a nice move from orkut but they should consider more automated approach.
