Is this Flaggable?

As sometimes I think we run into questions on if something should or should not be flagged (like reviews, etc.) I thought I'd start a thread regarding that discussion.

My big reason comes from this member's reviews:

A large majority of the reviews from this member are Amazon.com descriptions. They do credit the source, but is this a red flag or a blue flag?

They look more like Amazon reviews than descriptions to me ("above-average family film", "directed with a lot of empty flash", "strictly for devoted Bat-o-philes") so I'd red-flag them.

No, but that member is a real pain.

>3 2wonderY: We can't flag work pages, as far as I know.

I am tempted to combine "Author Photo" with something like "Unknown" to make it slightly more accurate as an author page. The work pages that should actually be gallery photos, we just have to ignore....

>5 aspirit: Yes, we can! Not this one in particular, because it is just stupid, not spam. But it you check the edition page, there is the option to flag spam.

Currently there are no works on the voting page for spam works. That's not because it isn't an active option, but because we keep at it a lot.
