Well, i think of spam as a pointless post that has no information in it, and is not spelled right, or it has just one word, or it is in all caps, or if it is flaming someone

It's basically anything that is really not constructive, and everything that is against the rules. Also, just like it has been mentioned, really short comments and post are also considered spam.

Spam is a post with no real insight, and no real contribution to the topic.

Spam is basically anything that breaks the rules. Spam is also any comment that is less than about 6 words.

OK
I think you got the answer to your question.
All short meaasges , or even long ones without subject or that have nothing to do with the topic are considered as spam.
Multiple posting on the same topic in a short interval is also considered as spam as you could obviously have put all your comments into one long one.

No more replies are needed I think, as they would be a repetition of what was said.
If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask the moderators and don't forget to consult the Forum rules
