I haven’t interfered much with the flagged posts here, and just observed for the most part. It seems that a lot of comments or posts get flagged for some pretty ticky tack, or petty reasons.
We can’t really expect a community of people from so many diverse cultures and regions to always agree with each other. Just because somebody posts a comment, or reply that doesn’t sit well with the reader, it doesn’t mean it should be flagged.
Before you hit the “Flag” button take a deep breathe and ask yourself; is the post in question offensive, vulgar, racist, or otherwise clearly inappropriate and far off topic?
If the answer is yes to any of those, then by all means please “Flag” it.
If no, then there is no need to “Flag” anything.
Remember just because it seems a little off putting, or just generally disagreeable it doesn’t justify a “Flag”.
Difference of opinion is not cause for a flag.
Really the best thing to do is to ignore posts, opinions you don’t like, and only “Flag” if it is clearly against the spirit of the community, or harmful. Just respect each other and avoid arguments.
Fly and be friends. :)
