Hmm. I've reported a couple (maybe 3-4 in my whole time here), but they were obviously against the rules -- like calling people nasty names using swear words and putting a s-p-a-c-e between each letter so it wouldn't get caught by the filter). 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.
