RESPONDING TO INAPPROPRIATE POSTS
WHAT IS CONSIDERED AN INAPPROPRIATE POST?
Some posts are against the rules because of word choice, while other posts
are against the rules because of the overall topic of the post. For the
purposes of this rule, "inappropriate posts" are considered to be
any post that has a topic that is against the rules.
If you see a post that is against the rules, whether for word choice or
choice of topic, please use the Report Abuse link on that post to let us
know about it.
WHAT IF MY RESPONSE ISN'T INAPPROPRIATE?
Any post responding to an inappropriate thread draws more attention to that
thread. That's the reasoning behind the rule, based on years of experience.
On a more practical note, when the moderators delete a thread, they can
either penalize just the poster of the main message, or everyone who posted
in the thread. Just avoid the thread if you think it's questionable, and
use the Report Abuse link so we can get rid of it.
