I think we have a winner for "best use of a period" right there.

What makes you think that the reporters are not sure?

What possible benefit would there be in such information being made public? What use would it be put to?

Because I would know who I need to tone it down with in my responses so as not to ruffle their skirt

Why, it would make it possible to ridicule the accuser, of course.

What if they don't wear a skirt?
Since anyone or everyone can spot a violation of rules and report a post, not just those to whom you are responding, you'd have to tone down all your remarks across the board. Say, that might not be a bad idea anyway.

we all know. Especially with those threads you started as evidence.

So far, no 'proof' that those you accuse have reported anyone, except your own bare speculation.
How many times have you and mad reported me? Eagerly awaiting an honest answer.

No one actually showed WHY they want access to that information. They just seem to feel it is wanted.


And, typically, those who claim to want it, want to do something with that information.

That is your opinion. And, not all persons will interpret posts identically, nor will all persons agree on what counts as 'obvious.' That is part of why it is moderators who make the actual decision.


AQR, you seem to feel that only one person will ever report a post. It is likely that many more than that may report posts that break rules. Frankly, you don't understand that posting that will be information overload. Kind of like watching event logs on an Active Directory server.

I just reported a post... I had not even posted on that thread.

I wasn't even the subject of the post.

Further, the site owner encourages help in identifying posts that break the rules.
I personally find it annoying to have to read posts that break the rules.

And, since that doesn't fit in HIS chosen meme, he ignores that as possible.

He appears to have tunnel-visioned himself into believing it ONLY happens the way he sees it, and is ignoring any other possibilities.


AQR, when you either see a warning in the 'recent warnings' list, or in your inbox, it does NOT mean that only one person reported, nor does it mean that 'only the ruffled person' reported that post.


I have personally seen posts by others, directed at me as a personal attack, and left them alone. Later, I would come back and observe a warning for that post. At times, I hadn't even SEEN the post that got warned, until later. In those cases, I would get accused of reporting the post, in spite of accurately denying reporting it, and in spite of not even having been online to see the post in the first place in some cases.



Your 'theory' is simply not valid. It is only ONE possible meme, and is NOT indicative of real-world activity.
