Flagging on this forum has taken a turn from deleting unnecessary comments to deleting opinions that are not offensive to anyone that you don’t agree with and flagging because you do not like a person.
Everyone has different opinions for each other, and you have to get used to it. If you can’t stand someone else’s opinion on an online gaming forum, then you will have a hard time in the real world. Consider this a lesson that you will find people that don’t agree with you, and it is customary to respect that. The only exception is when someone has an opinion that can be potentially offensive to someone. This includes racism, the offensive stereotypes, etc.
Secondly, flagging something because you don’t like someone is very immature. If you don’t like someone, you don’t spam-flag them (That accomplishes absolutely nothing). Try working out your problems with the person via PM or ignore the person altogether. No need to flag something, especially if it is a productive and/or intelligent post.
Something to keep in mind: When you flag posts, they appear in the mods’ PM boxes. Having to sort through all those flags takes a while, and it diminishes the reponse time to something that actually needs to be flagged. Also, if you are spam-flagging because you hate someone, you are inconveniencing two parties (The mods and the person you hate) because of your selfish desire to get some “benefit” out of spam-flagging.
So, before flagging make sure you are flagging for only the reasons specified and if you are putting something under the “Others” column, please make it something wirth responding to.
Don’t waste the mods time, flag correctly.
