This system is like communism good in theory but doesn't work in the real world. Most trouble is sparked when someone labels someone else a 'troll' because they have differing views. 'Reported' will just be a new and easier way to in effect label someone a 'troll'.
The abuse of the system as outlined above will lead to more trouble than before. And threads will be full of 'Reported'.
Well, the existing system is much better than the one put forward here. How about keeping things as they are? It is not perfect but nothing is.
I haven't read any of your ideas yet....
Here's the trick:
If you don't hurl insults and otherwise break forum rules, you won't be labeled as "reported"! ]
Six years on the forum, and now a member tells us we are not to use our internet phrase troll, which tells others to beware.....we have been using it forever, could you find a replacement...thx in advance. Question, did someone make you the mod, still able to contribute.....?
It's to be sure that your threads will be full of "Reported".
Do you have a better idea or do you plan on going thread to thread discounting every idea there is?
