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

If there are no actual words, I don't see the point in reporting it. This is just my opinion. OTOH, there was a thread recently where the OP was name calling l i k e t h i s and it was pretty crude. I didn't report it, but the mods caught it.

That might have been the post I reported. They were actual crude/curse words with spaces between the letters so the filter wouldn't catch it. In my example, I used %#$* in place of the swear words because I didn't want to *do* something (I deem) reportable.

The fact that the person was attacking someone else and knew enough to use spaces to get the crude words through was what made me report it. If they'd cursed while talking about their day, I wouldn't have. And if they'd been rude without using curse words, I wouldn't have. But they were breaking multiple rules and trying to evade the filters. Like I said... up to this point, I thought that's what the report button was for. But if the mods don't want "the help", which apparently they don't... then that's fine with me.

Lol Sorry, I'm a little slow today. That thread was over the top and I completely see your point.

If you're talking about Survivor, I remember that. I also reported it. To me, that is being mean to other posters just to be mean, which is worthwhile. These were not spoilers about things that had already been aired.

Mostly what I'm referring to are the posters who will post things to someone's thread that sound like this: "This is political/religious and I'm the DIS police and this is political/religious so how dare you post a thread like this. You're a horrible person because you break rules. How come I can't break the rules, too?? I'm telling." I think THAT is the kind of help the moderators/webmasters don't need or want.

Cruelty directed at posters, even as minor as the Survivor spoilers (which were end-of-season spoilers - not ones about things that had already happened on the show), I think is worth reporting. That person came on specifically to be mean to a group of people, and I'm guessing they were booted. It seems to me like they were maybe using a new identity both times.

Funny thing is, he was wrong wasn't he? The guy came on and posted the "final 3" and that wasn't the final three that wound up happening.

Yes, yes they do. I can't give details or I'll get "in trouble" (again).

Usually it's about something that could be considered religious or political, but that is really a benign original post that hasn't even showed signs of being an argument/debate.

It just reminds me of that kid in school who would say, "You said the word 'fart'. You better stop, or I'm gonna tell the teacher."

It's obnoxious.

I'm surprised my Mary and Joseph snow globe thread wasn't deemed a religious discussion by someone.
Didn't you report me for a post a ways back? I remember a thread where I was joking around with another poster(nothing political or religious). You came on the thread thinking our posts were serious. We explained that we were only kidding around. But you didn't find it funny.

Anyway, I think there are many tattletales on here.

I'm trying to think back if I ever reported someone. I honestly can't remember for sure. There is one poster (posted on this thread, actually) that was posting such disgusting things on a thread a while back, I was just about to the point of reporting him/her. I can't remember if I actually did, or if the thread got closed before I did.

Have been here on the CB nearly 9 years and there's been one time I wanted to reach through my monitor and make the "golden rule" come true. Biggest CB bully reported me for being "harsh" to her. She dished it out to many here but reported me for being "harsh" to her. Yeah, no doubt I have everyone here in tears with my bad self.

Thanks, I think I should pay closer attention to what is going on.

That's okay, I don't want you to get in trouble (again).
I have read some pretty crazy threads on here, sometimes they can be quite entertaining but when people really start getting into it I don't understand why they don't just agree to disagree.

Pot meet kettle? Odd to me that you started this thread.

I've never felt the need to report anyone although I was reported for saying some (general) people eat a disgusting amount of food on the dining plan.

I can't even remember what it was, but I guess it doesn't take a lot to be classified as a minor personal attack.
I've had some people get really mean and nasty on this board, yet I have never reported them. I pull up my big girl panties and keep going. HOWEVER, I have been turned in for minor personal attacks. The funny thing about that is, the people I got snippy with (and whom I am certain are the ones who turned me in) are some of the rudest bullies on the board. In seems the bullies have the most tender feelings and are the quickest to squeal when they have been offended. Typical.

What I am always surprised about is when a thread that seems like no big deal/nothing controversial gets closed. The thread starts off harmless enough and then someone takes it on a tangent (usually because of their own agenda) and the next thing you know, it is closed.

I admit it. When I see a "Closed" thread, I usually click on the last few pages to see WHY it was closed. I mean, if it's about strollers, ECVs, cutting in line, parade etiquette, politics, etc., I expect it to be closed and know it's just a matter of time. But when the topic title is harmless and I hover over the title, read the first bit of the OP and it indeed IS harmless, yet it manages to morph into nastiness and get closed......I want to know what kind of journey, "Do you prefer banana nut muffins or blueberry muffins?" took to get closed. How does, "Should I cut my hair?" turn into a blistering back and forth of hatred? I don't know, yet it happens again and again. So yes, I click on it and want to see the evolution from harmless to vicious.
