Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Flag Abuse

I was worried about the flags when they were introduced. Too easy for people to abuse them. Looks like I have been proven right. Some new guy, ayayron, who just signed up at 9:22 tonight, no posts yet, has already Spammed me 1, Abuse 1 and Troll 5 times in about 30 minutes. Seems a bit fishy. Tweeve maybe? Somebody else who seems to have a gripe with me? Check your stats and see if he's hit you. Something is gonna have to be done about this. Not sure what. It's obvious this person has to have something against me and created another handle just to attack me.

    Looks like he/she...and his/her BS flags...are gone!

    Just saw that, too. Everything has been set back to zero. Good to know our moderators/those in charge are on top of things. Thank you guys. You rock!

    The user profile doesn't show what the user has posted as feedback.  It shows the community feedback towards that user.  ayayron never posted anything.  It's the same script kiddie as usual.

    Yeah...after I commented a couple of more flags showed up, but the previous flags against Griff were removed prior to that.  Hopefully the powers that be ban the account.

    Don't worry about it.   Just don't be mean to anyone (unless you know them and it's in jest).  I never say anything inflammatory to the smurfers.  I did get a gif (animated image) file get marked as a 'troll' by some guy.  Obviously wasn't a troll gif.  Oh well, whatever.

    Yeah, I saw the Vikings troll.  Very nice!  You might need to rub that troll's hair a few times for your Vikings this Sunday.  Seattle has a good team this year.

    The Packers had the "scab officials" handicap against Seattle - they shoulda won that game.  Still, they're a formidable team.  Good luck.  The Saints are screwed this year, so I hope ya'll take up the slack.

    We'll see.  The Seahawk defense is pretty good this year.  Their offense is not bad either.  Their QB Wilson is starting to play pretty good and their RB Lynch is gobbling up yards. 

    Just a little help for you Skiddy and the rest of my Canadian brethren; a "yard" is a little shorter than a "meter" by a couple of inches...er a few centimeters.  I hope that helps you understand and enjoy "American Football".  Oh, I think there's no "e" in "horny"

    So I get flagged as a troll for asking what a video means? I didn't know if it backed the OP or not. Yup the flag option needs work.

     

    Edit; so I am dumb, it was the op calling me a troll, Talk about calling the kettle black. I believe that thread was deleted.

  • SmokeyPittSmokeyPitt Posts: 4,574
    One thing I have noticed on the iphone the "off topic, agree, disagree, like" buttons are always there, so it's pretty easy to accidentally click on one of those when you are scrolling through a page.  Obviously someone was intentionally throwing around flags...but I suspect there have been a few accidental flags as well.

    The thread is still up.  That jerk "Trolled" me and I carry that proudly.

    I think this whole internet thing is bound to be abused so lets just shut it down ;)

    Seriously I think the idea of flagging comes from the right place and if there is a little bit of abuse and some small minded individuals use it as a tool to disrupt normally smooth operation of the forum too bad.  I think for truly helpful members the good flags will out weigh any given by petty spiteful folks.  Maybe there could be a system that can review negative flags given to people that receive mostly positive feedback.

    Fred thanks so much. I could never understand that imperial stuff. In Canadian football they use metres and there are only three downs.

  • I think the whole flag thing just can't work.  All we really need is a "report" button and moderators that can stay on top of things.

     Maybe they can limit things like this buy not letting people use that function unless they log so many weeks as a member with out being reported as being a troll. Maybe make it a requirement to log a certain number of posts to become a full member. Most people that hang around here for long periods of time won't abuse the privilege.
