The AUP states no spam. If any posts, no matter how short or how long, or of what quality, are constantly filling the feed, this is spamming the feed, in my opinion.
The recent incident saw this happening, as well as the posts being very low quality.

Being short isn't the issue. The posts contained either information that anyone could easily see just doing one google and reading the hits - no need to actually go to a site.
- and/or only contained brief, highly speculative claims, or asked silly questions.
Since it was a new user, benefit of the doubt and "poor quality' vote is what I did, but had the spamming continued I might have escalated. These kinds of posts are very common elsewhere, and only have one purpose - to game the system with only as much effort needed to avoid getting kicked out. It works if the rules are slack enough.
