Thanks. Like taking money from a baby, or in this case, a 9-year-old.

Yes, forum rules are being abused. I've seen posts disappear based upon the author rather than the content. One just happened in this thread.

The Wizard made his policy quite clear on page 4 of this thread yet the abuse continues.

The flagging sounds out of control. It may be just as bad as the HOA problem here in Vegas.

Some people have become judge, jury and executioner. I say flag the flagers!

I'm quite certain nobody has anything to worry about unless their name is Altut.

If he decides he wants to be a productive member of the community and stop trolling and insulting, he shouldn't worry about getting his posts busted.

If I lay off, other people will bust him or he will be banned eventually, anyway. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now. But trust me, you won't like it.

I admit I flagged 2 Altut posts last night because he was so obviously JL. He was bragging about how great Singer was and I had no idea his posts would disappear when I flagged them. I thought it would just be brought to the attention of a mod. My bad...

Wizard, why not have the flagged post go to a non-postable archive thread that can be viewed by anyone instead of disapearing completely?

Then people can view who and what was flagged. And if you've established a way to track flaggers you can ultimatly punish them, if necessary.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

...and actually, if you had all of Aluts relevant current posts in one place, perhaps you would already be seeing him off to the Twilight Zone.
