I thought there was a way to report a T&C violation on a thread, like if someone is posting abusive comments towards people. How do you do that?

Hit the ALERT option in the drop down under the members avatar in the post.

2 ways to alert. Firstly look for a user's drop down menu and select “ALERT!” as shown here:



You will then be taken to the complaints page where you can alert us to various stuff around the board. Please see this thread for a great explanation on how to alert correctly: **ALL MEMBERS** Member Guidelines For Spotting/Alerting T&C Infractions

Lastly, if you’d like to make a general alert about something, such as an offending U2U for example, or instead if you’d simply like to give us a suggestion on improving ATS, click on Tools found at the top of every page and then look for the “complaint” option. For U2U's, please copy the offending U2U for us to review.

Explanation: Flagged!



Simply access either of those functionalities to make an alert/report T&C infractions.

The former is for making alerts on members individual replies and the latter function is for making alerts on inappropriate threads.

Personal Disclosure: I hope this helps!

Meh... I've just been given the f-bomb and called scum moments ago in a thread.

The MODS eventually get around to cleaning up.

Hang in there and welcome aboard.

Really?


I must say i'm surprised loam, your threads, or the way you post, does not strike me as the sort of material that would bring knuckle draggers like that to the threads. You've always been respectful and diplomatic in the way you put your point of view across.

I must also say i'm quite jealous, no-one has ever been really abusive to me here yet, certainly not had an F-bomb thrown yet. I think that would just make me laugh anyway.

Thanks for the kind words.

In truth, even I have gotten a bit sloppy and discourteous on rare occasion through the years. But I really make it a point not to be!

I did laugh today... Particularly because I didn't think what I wrote would get even close to such a reaction.

Odd balls out today.
