Info: "Report this post to a moderator"

I just wanted to make this a bit more visible in case anyone else is wondering the same thing.

I decided to perform a BF experiment: what happens when you click on the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of a post?

Bottom line: the post is reported to a moderator. Pretty simple, huh?

The post I reported, along with more information about the reporting process, are in a test thread that I hijacked. Further details about the reporting process can be found in that thread:

In retrospect, I should have created my own thread.

In the event that the link fails: the original thread was titled "test", and was posted by RoboCheme on Jan 11, 2009.

It is simple, and as long as we are on this subject--it is perfectly all right to use this feature to report pretty much anything which a member finds troubling.

"This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts."

If something's bothering you about a post, or you think there's a troll afoot, please report it! We can't see everything, and it helps us make our moderating more consistent.
