Is it anonymous? Would MNHQ contact me or just look at what I reported and delete if they thought they should?

Saw something earlier which I thought was awful and have come back on now and I couldn't believe it was still there so was wondering if I ought to report it - but am a wimp!!!

If you report it, whoever is on duty will look at the post and either delete it and tell the poster off or say it's okay.

report it
mnhq will know it was you
say why you think it is wrong
they won't mind if they think you are wrong

MNHQ give all your details to the person you reported so they can come round and .....wink

No don't worry I've reported a few before and I survived!

Thanks guys, I'm such a wimp! Even too much of a wimp to tell you what it was! Sorry Reality!!

Or tell me and I'll report it (I've always wanted to tell tales on some errant poster wink) grin

You have to say what the thread was now. It's the rules.

I've done it now! I feel like a naughty school girl grassing someone up! My lips are sealed girls wink

They don't email you about it. I reported a post once blush and it wasn't deleted and I never heard nuffin. Assumed MNHQ just thought I was being hysterical and/or hormonal or something, and ignored my bleating...

I've always been emailed when I report things. I'm most likely to report people who should be paying for adverts though.

Ooh yes I've reported stuff on the local site (I'm a tsarotter - the evil twin of the tsarina) and we have a few posts that you think 'hmm that's a big advert really isn't it!'

I have almost always had a reply saying yay or nay, in bunting decked reasonableness, from MNHQ.

Heard nothing yet, but then its hardly an urgent matter. Off to see if my dinner is done, it smells good and am v hungry.... Maybe hear something later.

...don't answer the door if anyone knocks..wink

I've had emails from MNHQ when I dob in report posters.
