Replace "dumb-user" confirmation dialogs by GMail-like Undo links.

    Each time I "spam" a comment (and that's often), I have to hit "Enter" for the confirmation dialog box.

    I think this kind of dialog box (which, face it, is aimed at clueless users or mistakes) should be replaced by a GMail-like "Undo" link, which would be there in case we need it, but wouldn't be clicked as often.

    There are probably other situations where such a dialog box appears, but spamming comments is the first one that comes to mind.

    I think we should keep the spam'd items on the page and switch the "spam" link to "unspam" (much in the way that you can "approve/unapprove" comments. This would speed up the de-spamming process a lot, and it would prevent errant clicks (sometimes when the spam'd comment goes away, the movement of all the ones below it shifting up causes me to mis-click).

    Given the ratio of spam-to-ham comments I'm getting, that clearly wouldn't do it for me. I want spam to disappear.
