    Re: Sexism in the ubuntu forum

    well, to be more specific, there's a user in the forum whose signature i find sexist and offensive, completely in violation of the ubuntu forum guidelines, and definitely not welcoming to women. at least, that's my opinion. and i've sent a pm to this user regarding the offense, and this user has refused to do anything about it. so i'd like to report it. even if nothing comes of it, i'll feel like i've done my part.

    See the red tv screen? That's how you report posts.

    What is his/her() signature?

    Censuring ourselves is not what we're striving for. If the user finds an offensive post/thread/signature, he/she is encouraged to report it privately to a member of the staff.

    As for those asking cokhavim what's the actual offense, let us handle it privately. No need for public gossip.

    since the "report post" button has a note that says "This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts" i wasn't sure that that was the appropriate place to report someone's signature.

    could i pm one of you staff about it? (ie aysiu, bored2k, etc?). i fully agree with bored2k about handling things privately.

    Have you mentioned it to the guy who has the offensive comment?

    If not, that's probably the first thing you should do.
