Recently, I've been posting about the problem with Gather's current flagging system. It is too easy for a troll to flag a postÂ simply because it's over a subject they dislike. Especially when trolls flag and already flagged post or as I've encountered when they flag for the reason of other. In this case, I feel the reason provided should be made visible for all to see.
My posts about portions of another gatherer's email got me flagged, she had written me to say there was copyright infringement, and complained that I did not give her credit for her words by attributing them to her name, when I asked if she wanted me to mention her name; I was soon flagged.
All 3 had their flags lifted. I'm positive I know who were responsible. Is it not harassment and petty to flag for the sake of flagging? Would you report these people for harassment if it had been done to you?
(I'll reply to comments later)
