Flagging trolls and other questionable content

One of the things that is really great about NWDC is that you guys are always quick to recognize trolls, spammers, sockpuppets and general internet douchebaggery, and in fact are often the ones who alert us mods about potential problems.

The most effective and quickest way to alert the moderators about suspicious posts is use the "Report This Post" feature, found on every post and activated with the ! icon.

When you see a questionable post, click that icon and fill out a brief description of why it's suspicious or inflammatory. After you submit it, that post and the forum it's located in will be flagged for all the moderators to easily see and react to.

This method is a lot more efficient than PMing a mod or two or responding within the thread, which we may miss at first if it's not evident from the thread title.

Thanks, folks, and keep those trolls off our site!

1) You're too young to ask. :tomnic:

2) If someone is looking for an escort, do they really want a cheap one? Just sayin' . . .

abusing the Report function will result in immediate mockery, avatar and signature hacking, and distribution of the email address on record to various personal hygiene and erectile dysfunction self-help subscription services.

WOW, the site is loaded with [spam]. I get warning pop-ups from Malwarebytes even looking at the thread. Don't go there.
