    Depends on the mod... I delete more threads than all the other mods combined.

    I either do it to "take out the trash"
    Or, I do it so people can't point to their closed thread as a badge of honor... it just disappears as if it never existed...

    I was more thinking on giving you something funny to talk about, like: "Remember that CyberShy made this silly report, how idiotic can one be" etc. etc.

    Are there any (public) figures on who is the biggest reporter?

    One of the mods (Ming or Rah I think) used to joke that their email was just full of Panag complaining.

    Please note the veracity of this claim is unknown to me.

    No, I believe it was complaints ABOUT Panag, not the complaints OF Panag.

    The statement I was referring to was clearly complaints from Panag rather than about, though both may well exist.

    I conclude it was coments by panag about panag.

    Still, it's not as anoying as when forum members decide to sort out problems themselves, which invariably ends up making things much worse. *sigh*

    can't the admin go into his admin cp panel and turn off reporting by guests? or just ban the guy's IP?
