Why isn't there a report button on people's profiles?

I know there's a block button which is good, but I think we should be able to report people too if they're just being antagonistic & spammy. I know mods take care of this stuff like this but they can't be everywhere at once either.

I agree there should be one. Especially after that racist discussion that just started several minutes ago

I think that would definitely cut down on a lot of the problems that the discussion section has.

Sounds like a good idea to me. And I would imagine that it should be relatively easy to add such an option to the "gear" icon that currently contains "block user".

you can use the "support" tab on the left of the screen, to report someone who's spamming.

Yeah I guess I could, but I figured that was just best for actual problems with the site. If there was an option specifically for trolling & stuff like that it would probably take make it easier & quicker for the rest of Duo to fix up nonsensical matters.

That would be helpful I suppose. I haven't come across many instances of a single user being a persistent problem though. When I do find that someone has been particularly offensive or nasty or what have you, I just go post something on one of the mods walls.

AlexisLinguist particularly enjoys dealing with troublemakers so I suggest that everyone just report them to her on her activity. She gets a lot of comments and interaction so don't be afraid to post it several times if she doesn't get back to you within the hour.

Cheers :).

I have had problems in a discusion called "They are babies." a jerk called me something i don't want to repeat so i deleted my comment so he could not follow me. I agree as well but there would need to be trustful people or machines to go threw the chat or whatever because that button could be used to report us by the antagonistic,spammy ,and spiteful people out there. Just throwing my thoughts out there for you guys to read. ;)
