I think that if you are voting on a spam in a project for which you
are listed as admin then you get five votes.  So for your own projects
you can vote it to be spam yourself.  But for other projects where you
are not listed as an admin then you only get one vote.  But even for
your own projects the spam isn't really removed.

What I would like to see is something like what the Debian folks have
which is to flag a bug as having spam in it and have a moderator team
work through those and do the cleanup.  That seems to work fairly

Yes.  Definitely a lot to think about! :-)
