Fellow members,

If you come across a particular member who is extremely low-value added, trolls, flamebaits, is a fanboy, etc., please either send a private message to a staff member with the member's username and a link to the offending post. Alternatively, reporting the post creates a thread on the subject in the Reported Posts forum which has the following format:


Ironduke (http://www.worldaffairsboard.com/member.php?u=4) has reported a post.

Reason:
this guy is a troll.

I'd like to stress that, with hundreds of posts every day, we can't possibly read everyone of them.

So if you've ever wondered "Why don't the Moderators do something about trolls etc on the board?", there's a really easy way to help out as Ironduke outlined :)
