In this case, the false flag spamming was admitted by two posters.
The flag system works nominally, most of the time, as best it can, if not abused.
Ive seen unwarranted “hides” caused by persons deliberately flagging it without cause, but also posts that genuinely were innappropriate/spam/off-topic as well.
I assume you are referring to me.
I was not trolling, nor spamming false flags.
None of my posts got removed, nor hidden as a result of false flags.
I also dont kill threads, infact I produce more content in threads here than most of you combined, many times over.
What kills the threads I participate in, is trolls repeatedly trying to pound their head against me, and ultimately making it a mess of crap no-one wants to read, by their own action.
They are quite happy with that, as it wrecks/derails the thread, which is their purpose.
I’m here to promote/facilitate discussion with hard questions, not to kill threads.
If you think that makes me a troll, then I am the best troll this board has ever seen.
