Hi Chris,
s
I'd say the fewer lines drawn: the better.

But, there are cases where extreme behavior is so obviously at odds with the long-term value of the site, that, imho, a mechanism needs to exist for dealing with that ... a non-punitive mechanism. Isn't having an "inappropriate" report option suggestive of a need for reshaping, or forwarding, some content ?

I regard the Lounge as a great place to relax, have fun, marvel at the diversity and creativity of my peers and mentors, post my own weirdness, and, often, learn.

I also liken the Lounge to a restaurant where the cooks, waiters, and the customers, frequently throw valuable food away Smile | :) I'm a veteran dumpster diver, so, that's fine for me: but, is it really fine that lots of other people who could benefit will miss out ?

cheers, Bill

p.s. I couldn't stop caring if I wanted to: the curse of empathy.
