So, I just accidentally reported two picture comments as spam. And I have done so many many times in the past.
The reason is because I have a Mac and therefore a touch pad, where I have the option of a mouse click resulting from my finger hitting the touch pad.
So sometimes when I am scrolling through a picture or forum post, I just happen to scroll past a "report as spam" button and end up hitting it in the process.

Can the "Report as Spam" option be changed to make reporting less easy to do on accident?
I don't have specific suggestions on how, but I just get really frustrated that I keep reporting things without intending to.

A problem that probably applies to most laptops. How about just using a mouse when you are on the site?

LOL. I hope you don't do your banking online. ;-)

You don't say what kind of Mac and OS you use. If the issue is fairly universal (i.e. not specific to a specific webpage or app you use), I'd double-check your Trackpad/Keyboard and Mouse preferences for clicking/gestures and tracking behaviour. Using a mouse is, of course, an option, if you're comfortable with it.
