Abusive use of "reporting as abusive" RRS feed

Answers

  • While I can't see the reasoning (only that it was flagged abusive, but not why) - I suspect the language used was part of the problem.  There is no reason to flag something abusive due to people expressing their opinions -but there is a large difference between constructive criticism/complaints and complaining in a manner that comes across as abusive, shouting, or destructive...  This post is on the fence (mainly the title and the all caps shouting), in my opinion.

    While I actually really like a lot of the points made, they could have been made in a more respectful manner...

  • I see your point but the title (I agree, somewhat emotional-overstated) and the few caps shoutings could be tolerated, nevertheless. Maybe the post is on the fence; we all are adults, however, and should be able to bear some exaggerations (I don't see any "destructive" elements here - the poster wouldn't have gone into so many details if his only goal would have been criticism for criticism, and nothing more).

  • IMOA, a forum moderator should change the thread title.  Apart from that, I cannot see why the OP’s comment was flagged as abusive.
