And now your thread had been reported again Chrissie....

Who is this charmer that does this?

How has it been lately, folks?

Have people stopped randomly RR'ing?

I have noticed that it now says 'Report' rather than 'Request Review' in the title area of posts

- or have I imagined that it used to say 'Request Review' ?

Hi Sue

Not sure why this thread has been found and lifted almost two years on?


SylviaInCanada Report 17 Mar 2013 22:32

nor do I

except Sue is interested in knowing what has happened in the intervening time

However ...............

random reporting is still with us.

Posts are being reported for unknown reasons often after days of them being on the Boards.

Friday and Saturday nights seem to be bad for random reporting.

Sue is right, it used to say Request Review, and now says Report ................. when you click on Report you are given options for why you think the post should be reported.

One of those Options is "Other" .......... where you can enter your personal reason for reporting.

that opens Pandora's Box!

Hi sorry this is so late in the day to make a comment but I've never been one to be on time for anything :-D.
Having read some of the replies commenting on posts that have been reported I just wondered if who ever is doing it is not entirely ofay with the system in as much as they don't realize that they are reporting the said posts and they just think that they are leaving the message.
Or am I being totally naive :-(

Hi Dizzy

I think they know exactly what they doing!

Some posts have been reported more than once and for no good reason at all
