I want to know what happens when a forum post is reported?
I would wager it would depend on who read the report.
..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)
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.

Just wondering, some subjects get a lot of replies and some don't get any.So, what is the best thing I should put on a forum? If I don't get any replies, then this is a bad thing to put in a forum.=
