    Fellow members,

Alternatively, reporting the post creates a thread on the subject in the Reported Posts forum which has the following format:

    Can I report myself? I annoy the crap out of me sometimes......The "low value added" category would apply most days also....

    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
