    LOL, I have 6! I win.

    Early days of the changeover some folks discovered the new and unnecessary abuse button and got a few licks in because the equally new and unnecessary dislike button probably wasn't enough and thought they'd "send you a message" more than anything. The abuse reports I was able to figure out (because they were anonymous, lol, were just trivial stuff). Simply reporting takes care of any issues, always has.

    Don't sweat it!

    LOL, been on vacation and posted a bit while gone but haven't checked my profile - I think I've picked up 2 in just a couple days, lol. I know I was a little grumpy, but some folks forgot the big boy pants I guess.

    Edit: HaHa - found 'em and as suspected just one of those don't call me out while I'm trolling a thread types. Still kind of grumpy after not much sleep getting home, I might get from 8 to 30 by the end of the day!

    And considering some of the PM's I receive about sucking as a human being, I'm disappointed to have a big goose egg. Gotta try harder I guess.

    You can’t see who gives them, right? I got a couple in past few posts for no reason, time to get moderator involved because it’s silly.

    btw- you can click report on the post that gets the flags and mod's will clean it up and take care of the trolling flagger. That's what I was instructed to do by moderator.

    Didn't even know this was a thing. Hum. Does this show up after someone clicks "Flag"?
    They got rid of the thumbs down toggle a while back which seems like a smart move. Maybe abuse will be next?

    Why do you guys worry about this? Someone can flag you all day long for abuse and it means nothing. If you've actually done something wrong you will get a notice from a moderator. Until then the abuse flaggers are wasting their time.

    If so, they should simply get rid of the flag function.

    The "abuse" flag really is pointless. Just have things reported as has always been the case, IMO, and from previous posts months ago it really didn't sound like it was helping moderators to have the "abuse" option for purposes of moderation AND posts flagged as "abuse" which usually really aren't abusive at all by and large haven't been deleted which suggests the "abuse" tag was unnecessary. IMO if you want to let people tag someone for "abuse" whatever that means in this day and age and normal reporting isn't enough, then remove the anonymity from the abuse postings.

    LOL, Tiger/steroids troll thread started, eventually and predictably locked up but I get an anonymous "abuse" for "Go Away", which was pretty much on point, lol. It really is pointless.

    Report or don't report, this "abuse" thing really serves no purpose.

    How did you get another of those? Is it still coming in through the "flag" button? If so...lame.

    LOL, yep. Suddenly I had 10! Clicked on it and my post was simply "GO AWAY!", haha. I guess the OP was particularly threatened, intimidated and . . . . . . abused by those words! It's really lame IMO, but some folks think they are sticking it to you. I'm more amused than anything - silly, but also unnecessary to have 2 levels of reporting in addition to simply reporting.

    They took out a post I made with an objection to the "stars of doom." No wonder there are so few long time members left. Wonder where Sean2 ended up...

    LOL, asked the age old answer "why" - abuse!

    Kind of like in the original Miracle on 34th Street - don't want to challenge someone's delusion.

    LOL, I've picked up two for posts that are absolute nothings the past couple of days. Have some serious chickens at work.

    I still think it's unnecessary, report or don't report, but if folks get to tag something "abuse" (which has a pretty specific connotation) then let's make sure we can know who did it. Not really any accountability there for the button pushers.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
