    I prefer not to use it, since I think we are mostly adults here. I had to start using it because mods advised me to report after I received several warnings for responding to flamers and stalkers. Apparently the ones who flamed me also reported me for responding and since I did not report them for flaming and mods do not read beyond the reported post, I was considered the offender.

    Since I did not know who would report me for what [as there is no clear cut rule for what is offensive] I began to report people in a manner consistent with previous warnings

    After a few days, I received a warning for reporting. Since I would get warned regardless of the fact that I reported or responded, I quit reporting.

    Didn't seem to be any point.

    Overall I think I used the report button maybe ten times. Off and on I have reported some very slanderous posts directed against others, viz Lori and sandy but since they too seemed to receive no follow up, I quit that too.

    So maybe between 10 and 20?

    The poll is anonymous, but you can 'fess up to how many times.

    I've selected "About Ten"

    I used to report the shoe spammer, but I started to quite like his posts.

    I would report anyone who could get into legal trouble for their posts.
    Or someone of possibly harmful intent who needed watching. Just to prevent trouble for the site really.

    I once reported someone for threatening to kill me.

    I wouldn't report anyone for annoying me.
    I just ignore them.

    Never used it. Never considered using it. People say things all the time but all of us at one time or another has failed to convey a message in the context we desired. As a result things get misconstrued, it's just an accepted part of posting for me. I believe in giving the benefit of the doubt.

    I really don't use it for if I have a problem with someone I just use the "ignore" button .

    I chose the about ten times option, though I think it is in single figures. I've used it to report individuals who refuse to follow a logical line of argument, consistently and blatantly. I don't think it's ever done a blind bit of good.

    good to know, i though it was just me.

    (1970's British sitcom about a department store)

    from Our Figures are Slipping -- "It's very short notice--there's my pussy to consider. Who's going to let it out?"

    from Cold Comfort -- "You're lucky to have me at all, Captain Peacock. I had to thaw me pussy out before I came. It had been out all night."

    fromThe Think Tank -- "Well, if I'm not home on the stroke of six, my pussy goes mad."

    from Hoorah for the Holidays -- "Oh, Mr. Rumbold, I hope this isn't going to take long. My pussy's been locked up for eight hours."

    from The Hand of Fate -- "You know, animals are very psychic. I mean, the least sign of danger and my pussy's hair stands on end."

    I only used it a small number of times. Under 5 for sure. I reported someone a long time ago, they're not around anymore. And I think I reported Baron Max a few years ago, don't remember why. And I actually regret doing so because I now like the guy. lol
  19. Thoreau Valued Senior Member

    Oh and I reported SAM a long time ago... years ago. And again regret doing it.
