To actually report something, I believe you have to give a reason when the box comes up.  If you click out of it, its not reported.

I agree...I keep hitting it when I go to move the scroll bar.

I've hit it a few times by accident but I've always cancelled out of the report before it got sent.


Except for a time or two when I hit the report button but not by mistake...

I sometimes hit the report button thinking it's the quote button because that's where the quote button is on several other boards that I post on.

And I think the one here used to be over there once upon a time.

Incorrect - the Quote button has never been in that area on ARFCOM... This has been discussed and argued thoroughly when the board change came into affect several months ago.. major shitstorm by those who didn't remember correctly.

No, he's saying that the quote button is there on DIFFERENT forums on the interweb, not ARFCOM.

Only those who think it's funny to click the report button or those who abuse the feature put their posting privileges at risk.


I consider that an impolite post and it has been properly reported as such!  See ya later, buddy!


­j/k!  Please don't kill me.

Ahh, my bad.  Thought you were talking about the first guy.  I didn't even see what Spade had said.

I agree, I hate where the button is. I've hit it several times by mistake, and actually wanted to post a thread about this very topic, with nearly the same title a while back!

If the button was red or some other bright color, accidental clicks might be reduced.
