    I want to know what happens when a forum post is reported?

      I would wager it would depend on who read the report.  smile

            ..but maybe, too, how much of a habit they made of saying the same kind of thing, time and time again??  (just guessing about the possibilities)

              Ah, so there's a scorecard?  Sorta like a hall monitor checklist, I would imagine.  lol  Yes, I can see this is entirely possible.  Apparently, it's much more important than checking out new writers before allowing them to publish here at will.  smile

      It goes into a queue for the forum moderator to look at it, and decide whether action is warranted (e.g. delete the post, ban the poster).

      One thing I notice is that if someone swears or makes a personal attack, the moderator doesn't always read the whole thread to see if someone else provoked it. The result is that someone gets banned for losing their temper, but the person who caused the whole ruckus gets off scot-free.  I know they're busy but it would be nice if they took a few more minutes to make sure they've got all the culprits sometimes.

    And, it can take a while to be noticed over the weekend.
