    Guys if you see a post that offends you or is off topic then please don't reply. Just hit the little button, bottom left to report the post.

    The mods can then act appropriately. Lets try to keep threads on topic if we can.

    Yes. Anything that you want to report you can use that to do so.

    So if it offends you, why don't you report it so we can look at it? I have said it about 6 times now

    Why didn't / haven't you send me a PM about it giving me a heads up?

    Like I said, I'm not a mind reader am I? I don't sit on here 24/7.

    If you don't like it, then report it. Simple!

    Why is a poster being criticised for not reporting posts?

    Surely it is the moderators job to be identifying and looking out for these, if someone's posts were deleted then it suggests a moderator has already seen the comments and decided to keep the racism up there?

    Will this post be deleted?

    How long ago was this?

    Posters are encouraged to report posts if they offend them as everybody is offended by different things. What offends a mod might not offend everybody else.

    If something offends you so much, surely a couple of clicks of the mouse to get it reported isn't too much is it? If people want to throw their toys out of the pram over little things then they should report them, if we moderated every little comment just in case somebody may get offended I may as well close the site.

    All the corner shops where I live are owned by white people so no offence caused here.

    BTW I hate racist just about anything, but some jokes are funny. Have you ever told an irish joke? If so you have made a racist joke. How much censorship do we need?

    I've hit the 'report' button on quite a few posts that I considered abusive.
    Posts that say nothing but things like "Fuck off you moron".
    I've no idea if any action was taken - I suspect not.
