Comment (by TomH):

 By the way we sort of already do the first (in that having edits is a plus
 point in the spam scoring algorithm) and the other two are probably not
 where I would start in adding extra anti-spam features.

 My first steps would be add a moderation infrastructure, with a queue of
 things needing to be looked at and a set of people authorised to do the
 moderation; and then to add a "report" button which would send something
 to the moderation queue.

 After that I would add code to track who had reported each item, and to
 automatically hide things until the moderator had reviewed them if enough
 independent reports were received for it.
