How regular users should deal with a spam?

Sometimes there is a spam on Answers, e.g. like today. So, how regular users should deal with it? I mean those ones who have insufficient karma to delete the entire queastion/answer/comment.

For example, my karma is enough to Close a question, but not to delete it. However, for the answers and comments there is only Delete option which I cannot use.

I tried to downvote some of the spam answers today, but got negative points for this. Probably because it was several answers from the same user.

So should it be left for moderators (are there any?) or we have to take some action too?

Thanks
