Didn't know where exactly to post this, so how do you report someone?
To report a user, email abuse@duolingo, and contact two moderators. moderators have green rings around their profile on the forums. Some moderators are: olimo, GeniusJack, Usagiboy7
Correct! That sends an email to staff, so they can delete that user, if necessary.
You can probably avoid some of it by changing your profile picture to a cartoon or something. If you don't want to, I ABSOLUTELY understand. But the undesirables would be less likely to notice you. It's a trade-off, between how the world should be, and how it is. I hope you find a solution that works for you.
paulaha, I honestly thought about that and I'm still debating it. But whenever I do the cartoons, I change them frequently xD I'm so indecisive unless its one of my good actual pictures of me, because I only consider like one or two of those to be good. I may end up changing it after today though, if I can find the picture I want
