flaming in the forums is a problem. i propose that a flame icon be added. if a flaming post is posted those offended need not reply but just post a flame icon. the moderators could monitor "flames" and make a fair decision thus saving forum space. as rec. are added up so could "flames" against a poster . after a predetermined no. of flames the poster could be cautioned or have their posting rights cut.im sure something like that could be arranged. this would allow the offended to protest without adding more insult to injury.if the post was fair and it received many flames it would just hilight a problem and give moderators a better understanding of the poster and just wipe it out.
