[SOLVED] When should a post be reported?

I guess this question goes mainly to the forum admins. Should threads like "[deleted]" or cross-postings be reported? In other words things that an admin is seeing anyway while browsing through the "New" section, or would this just unnecessarly increase the noise ratio for you?

I haven't found a real answer to this in the forum ettiquette (it only says, that spam and oversights by the admins should be reported) and in this forum I only found this thread which is 6 years old.

A small clarification about what to report and what not to report would be appreciated.

Absolutely, any behaviour which you feel is disrupting the forums can be reported, the mods/admins will then check to see if further action is required.

If it turns out you're reporting things that don't need to be reporting one of us will contact you about it, so don't worry about that.

Okay, I was just worried that I would cause unnecessary work/noise for you instead of helping. So I'll keep reporting things I'll stumple upon. Thanks again and thanks for all your great work.
