      You're not alone, Nell, I did that once a few years ago.  I'll bet many more have done it also.  Sometimes we move our mouse faster than we move our brains.

      Not to worry, this happens more often than you'd imagine. Mods know to check to make sure flags are real and accurate (and ignore the ones that aren't).

      The other night, I overwrote a productive website with a new empty word press installation. That really deserves the picture! I am sure it is easily done!

        Argh... not backed up? I use Updraft Plus. It's free. It saved mine when an update crashed it.

    Was it a hub that is not on a niche site? Maybe if you flag it as spam, the team will look at it and say hey this one could actually be on a niche site big_smile Don't share this secret.
