Spam consideration/removal

I've been deleting some chain letters and "first comments", and I've started wondering about:
-What would people consider spam
-When would people (here) go as far as to remove them.
These two may not be the same, obviously. Some, maybe many, never remove, but consider a lot spam. Unfortunately I can not make a poll, as there can only be 5 answers. I have included all typical comments that are not comments upon seeing the item in question (item because we also have manga, it's not all media).

1. X comment (1st, 2nd, etc) that has no comment. If you only write "first comment", you are not commenting. You are only stating your place in the "box". This is even semantically incorrect.
2. Chain letters
3. References to a staff member's other performances, social life or the like, that has nothing to do with the item in question. Like "you can here see X before he/she....whatever", or "X is also a boxer, did you know", etc. Other performances are neither a comment on a movie, because it does not apply to the movie in question. However saying "X is great as always" is a comment upon the movie, because it says that he/she is great in this movie as well.
4. Demands/requests for uploads per se
5. Demands/requests for uploads if there are none, or the item is licenced. This is not the same, because it means that someone hasn't been bothered to check, and/or is making an impossible request
6. Purely sexual/attraction-wise comments. "I'd like to....him/her". These are obvioulsy not comments on a movie.
7. Insulting comments, including prejudice against item or other people "in the boxes".
8. Comments that just tell us that some person hasn't seen the movie. "sounds interesting", "will see later", or the worst of all "sounds boring" (worst because it indicates that the person is just making a comment about something he/she isn't even interested in, and therefore are doing it on spite, for cr points or some other bizarre reason)
9. Comparison that makes no sense. Like a drama movie about a loveless man with the comment "not as good as naruto", "will rather watch bleach", showing that the person is just telling us watching preference, no other comparison can be made, no link is made.
10. letters that make no sense at all. "ahfhbhio" or "jjjjjjjjjjjjj" or the like, indicating that someone is desperately trying to earn points. Personally I never think anything about it at all, because it may be some "hip" talk or something that may make sense for the writer, like there was a j on a door, which was very fascinating for the writer and he/she therefore went "jjjjjjjjjjj".
11. Links to other sites that has nothing to do with the item.
12. rude language, usually this will be linked to number 6 (sexual)

This is all I can think of. This is probably a duplicate, but I can see no original when skimming. In any case I need people's views before I consider whet I should remove. At this time I only remove 1 & 2, but I'm wondering about deleting 7 and especially 8 comments (8 because this is quite a trend, and it ahs nothing to do with movie comments. However there are a lot of 8 comments, which is why I'm asking this question. I don't want to start a massive removal trend of this character, if people don't support it). With this being said, I hope you understand me, even if I've made a duplicate. Also, you may indicate I should stop removing 1. However, I will continue removing 2, even without support, unless a moderator tells me to stop.

rob: that doesn't help. All I've listed are comments that can be considered irrelevant. But also comments like "I can see X's bad haircut on 4.53" and the like, may be considered irrelevant. But they do indicate a viewing, and are video comments. Almost all boxes are filled with remarks that can be considered irrelevant.

Please delete the second post and use the edit button.

For this topic, there were some threads about spamming but now we have a Report to Mod, Report Inappropriate user, etc. If you see spam, just report that user. As for me, Mauz is the best person to deal with spammers.

1. You can pretty much report anything that has spam and the mods will take care of it for you
2. Although mauz is one of the active mods on this site, several other mods (other forum mods and handful of media mods) take care of spam just as much as he does.
3. Also to anyone else reading that comment, please don't message mauz over trivial things like removing spam.

Thanks + Locked
