So everytime someone wants to flag a post for whatever reason, it gets removed until the mods review it....ummm how about we get crazy yourself some time...could mean 2/3 or more time for you to moderate other aspects of the site....instead of only one annoyed complaint...make it 3 strikes before you review...if its really outta line 3 people should point out the error in no time...then review often do you review them and leave them as they are? @@@@@@Then when they are reposted the flags that draw peoples attention are swayed...i know its the USA, but this is not a rigged election....

Remember burning the witches...a person only had to mention they suspected them of witchcraft and they were immediately detained and know....

Admitted your trials are more fair to us ATS users
...but if i was to flag an important post it really could make it fall down the ranks...Credit to the popularity of this site....but....the amount of new post is staggering on here, so it really does affect the outcome of how many people it may reach....

Peace...please dont delete me.....whimper;[

I have had a much differant experience over the years. Basically ATS mods get a post in the Mods-only forum alerting them of a problem (by way of the Alert option). Someone who is monitoring the forum goes and checks the problem post. If it is an obvious technical or T&C error (not quoting external quote or excessivly long quoting, etc.) The problem will be corrected on the spot and documented for other Mods to review if needed.

If it is something borderline or potentially severe, then the post is masked and held for staff review.

and sometimes nothing happens at all because they are all sleeping or busy.
