There's a Spam Dustbin?

I report a post, press send, and then “poof”. This happened twice already. You guys are beating me to spam!
Pressing the back key, it seems that I am now aware that there is a separate Spam Dustbin from the regular Dustbin. This is interesting.
Does the ST have any other dustbins meant for specific purposes?

Wait, how do you know there's a spam dustbin…? When you went back, did it say “Spam Dustbin” for the forum above the post?

What's a dustbin? A forum section not on the main discuss page? So spam posts actually aren't deleted?

$(".box-head")[0].textContent = "committing AT crimes since $whenever"

I think that the ST just wants you to think that they're deleted.

Apparently the “Spam Dustbin” is just the regular dustbin, renamed.

Yep! We have that so we can analyze spamming patterns. That and the regular dustbin are the only two dustbins we maintain.

This is my forum signature! On a forum post, it is okay for Scratchers to advertise in their forum signature. The signature is the stuff that shows up below the horizontal line on the post. It will show up on every post I make.
