    Reporting abuse

    Can a person be given demerits or banned from the forums for speaking freely when reporting abuse?
    Is the report confidential?

    Thread moved to Forum Feedback & Help.

    The report is confidential and can only seen by staff. A report is still subject to the Code of Conduct. On rare occasions we receive reports which are abusive and contravene the CoC, and they are dealt with in the same way as if the report was in a publicly accessible area of the forum.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.

    The Code of Conduct has information on how to make suggestions or query actions made by the moderation team:

    If you believe an error has been made in moderation or other staff actions, please post politely in the Resolution Center and help us understand your perspective.
    Providing you keep within the Code of Conduct you may post any comments.

    I would add that refering to the administrator in the thread as a "jerk" is not acceptable and is in itself a violation.

    From the Code of Conduct again:

    Respect the Forum Staff: We provide a service in our free time to keep the forums running efficiently.

    Flames are messages that personally attack or call any people names or otherwise harass. These, along with any generally condescending posts will be edited or removed at the moderators discretion.

    Re: Reporting abuse

    This is of course just a hypothetical question, discussing hypothetically bad, anti Linux behavior.

    So to see if I am clear, it is ok to say anything I wish when reporting abuse as long as it does not offend the abuser?

    Sorry, I am not talking about the resolution center, I am talking about reporting abuse.

    Re: Reporting abuse

    How then should one go about reporting perceived abusive behavior by Forum staff?

    Or is that strictly off limits?

    Again I am speaking hypothetically.
