How to...

How to report a post:

Please click on the Report Post button () on the bottom left of the individual post in question (under the name of the member that posted it).

You should report a post when you feel it needs to be brought to a moderator's attention. This could be because it's spam, it's abusive, it's in the wrong place, it's liable to cause a row or that it's intentionally misleading.

Reported posts are brought to the attention of the forum moderators and administrators, who will then consider if the post warrants any further action. All reported posts are recorded and reviewed. They are not responded to individually.

By reporting posts you help keep free of spam, abuse and other not nice things. Thank you for that.

How to post anonymously:

It is now possible just like in the personal issues forum to post unregistered or anon on this forum.

You have to log out of the site and then either start a new thread while logged out or click on the reply to a thread.

You will be take to a screen like this one:

It is a good idea to alter the username from unregistered to something else especially as there could be a few people in the thread posting this way and it can get confusing.

Please remember all unregistered or anon threads and post have to be manually approved by the forum moderators so it may take some time for them to appear. Any unregistered threads or posts which breach the charter of the forum will not be approved.

What is spamming?
Spam is the abuse of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. Spamming is the act of posting these types of (usually unwanted) messages on boards.

What is shilling?
A shill is an associate of a person selling goods or services or a political group, who pretends no association to the seller/group and assumes the air of an enthusiastic customer. The intention of the shill is, using crowd psychology, to encourage others unaware of the set-up to purchase said goods or services or support the political group's ideological claims.

What is trolling?
An "Internet troll" or "Forum Troll" is a person who posts outrageous message to bait people to answer. A Forum Troll delights in sowing discord on the forums. A troll is someone who inspires flaming rhetoric, someone who is purposely provoking and pulling people into flaming discussion. Flaming discussions usually end with name calling and a flame war. Trolling is the act of posting these sorts of messages which are deliberately designed to annoy other users of the site.
