I also don't know of any posts that have been reported (even though they obviously have) .... so do some members get told about posts they've had reported then? I have found that my (alleged offensive) posts are usually stealthily backdoor edited/deleted without warning/discussion or even acknowledgement and it is usually important to recheck your posts in a thread because of this just to find out there has been a modification. Do people get a report report about their reports then?
I carry the perception that all you have to do is report a post and the mods will come running in to help with your grievance. I know I've had some crazy post deletions and thread deletions by mods without letting me know about it.
One thread I posted was reported and got deleted because I posted an image of Stephen Hawkins - someone apparently complained that I was being discriminatory towards those with disability (of course, not my intention at all) It was a slightly strange thread topic to be honest, and no-one, it seems, 'got-it'. But the point was, the thread was deleted without question, and I was branded as a disabled-hater, and so it goes.
