Reporting specific spam post / user?

What and who is affected by this issue/request?

All users getting spammed, and wanting to do something about it.

Where on the platform does it happen?

When reading posts.

How do we replicate the issue?

For example this specific spam Is it a drinking fountain or not? - #19 by Kale_Hoffman by this specific spammer OpenStreetMap Community

Expected behavior (i.e. solution)

I wanted to report the spammy post and/or spammer, so it can be taken care of and other users not being shown it. However, there seems to only be Flag / It's spam for entire conversation/thread. I was looking for the option to report as spam only that one problematic post (the rest of the conversation is useful!).
There is an option to add an negatively-charged emoticon (like “angry”) to the post, but I guess that does not report the post as a spam?

Other Comments

Also it would be nice that users that have just created an account wouldn’t be able to post links for some time or until approved. Otherwise, it seems to practically invite spammers if they can link-spam immediately after creating the account.
