Whose butt are they kissing then if the mods don't appreciate their notification? BTW, I also assume (correctly or not) that mods probably roll their eyes when they get alerted.

Hold your breath and turn blue too why don't ya? Unless it's some kind of disgusting spam or something, I think the mods pretty much can figure out what should stay and what shouldn't, all without the little hall monitors helping.

I really enjoy seeing people threaten others with the possibility of receiving points. Nothing against the mods at all because they are doing their jobs but points don't really matter to me. I'm not the least bit concerned about virtual hand slaps that result in points that expire in a few days that really hold no bearing in real life

Slap me with 1000 points if you want, I can just create another account and keep on going

If you start a thread that is deemed inappropriate (political or religious for example), the moderators shut it down and slap you with 20 points (or is it 25?). I got one, cause they thought it was too political even thou i dont think it was. It was about prisons.

I think it's more that they think they are kissing butt then that the mods are thinking that they are.

We have a person at work who is like this. They are brown nosers, in everyone's business and will tattle tale on someone for blowing their nose wrong. The supervisor/managers all roll their eyes and grit their teeth when she comes running to them. She on the other hand, thinks that they love her for it and that she is their favorite and all that. You know the type I mean. I imagine some of the tattle disers being like her.

I swear there are some people who see the word God, or any politician's name and they push the little button.

There are some topics like Sandy that do involve those people, yet it is not a political discussion at all. Yet they see those names and they get button happy. Try reading the actual thread and realize that maybe just maybe it is more about a regular topic than a political or religious one.

Is this political?

Is this religious?


Yeah, that's a blue light on your head!

Aside from spam I did report another thread just because I thought it was completely out of bounds on any site & my warning bells were clanging. A relatively new poster started a thread questioning a certain physical feature about children. Several posters quite innocently participated in the discussion. Then the OP started asking for pics. I openly questioned the OP's need for pics on the thread to give people a heads up & reported the post. Apparently my response on the thread made people take a second look at the situation & I believe some even deleted their pics. The thread was removed.

I'd do the same again in a heartbeat. That's the type of issue I think is worthy of reporting a post. The rest? I have thick skin & just don't care.

That's what I don't get. I mean in reality we are all mostly strangers, so they/he/she are trying to be the "favorite" amongst a room full of strangers?

don't get it.

I've only reported a post once, it was on a TV show thread that was supposed to be no spoilers, big bold caps NO SPOILERS in the title. Someone came on and posted a big spoiler, so I did report that post so the mods could remove it before too many others saw it. Found out the person had done the same thing the year before.

It wasn't because I just didn't like what they were saying or thought someone was being rude.

I thought that was what the "report" button was for -- so the mods don't have to look at each and every thread/post on the board. But since Goofy4Tink *is* a moderator, and thumbs upped LuvsDragonflies's post that the mods don't need help of "little hall monitors," then perhaps I'm mistaken.

I've never typed "this has been reported" in a thread, but when I see someone do it, I thought it was more of a notice for other people: "Nobody else needs to report this because I already have" rather than a nah-nah-nah-boo-boo thing. That way, the mods don't have to wade though 20 "reports" on the same post. If someone has already reported it, I don't... no matter what it is.

See, I wouldn't report a post for using spaces between letters to slip in a curse word. That doesn't bother me in the least. But that's just me, no offense intended toward you.

I was reported once...couldn't believe my comment was taken so far out of reasoning. That's why I walked away from the DIS for a while.

It would depend on how it was used. The ones I reported were a personal attack where the person obviously knew they were out of bounds. Something like "You're a #*#@(#* #($* and I hope you go &$*#($ yourself."

If someone were complaining about their rotten day and slipped a curse word in, I'd let that go, too.
