How many times a day does the Alert get activated? Must be like a never-ending "in" box with a poor Mod sitting there praying for Friday to roll around I would imagine!
Actually, it's a forum that looks like every other forum. Every Alert generates a thread in that forum, which can be read by all staff. Complaint/Suggestion works the same way.

Now and then, a thread or post pops up that is worth alerting. Last year a guy posted a thread that linked to the Faces of Death videos, others try and sell stuff, post their own private details or get drunk and offensive.
In a different situation, a post-banned guy was u2uing me to post hoaxed material in a thread of his. The guy was a fraud looking for people to invest money with his schemes. His plan was to fake a cover-up of a bomb in New York that he predicted and hope members would invest in the markets based on his magic code. Exploiting terrorism and screwing over members for money was OTT so I PMd a mod and left them to it. A couple months later, I saw he'd been banned. He's still got websites
@ Neonitus and Purplemeyer - I've alerted the mods (one each) for the 1-liners and emailed Fox News

In your profile it says you have started 431 threads, but when you look at your threads it only shows 200. Each time you alert, it creates a thread in one of the mod forums.
So you have alerted around 231 times...unless some of those are 404'd threads.
