Veteran members of A to Z Forums will remember, and newer members need to know, how to deal with posts that are inappropriate in any way - whether on grounds of content or language (including but not limited to overtly political posts) or personal attack or spam, or merely just being "off". Here's how: Please report the post using the "Report" link at the bottom of the post, in the same line as the posting member's username to the left and the "Reply" link to the right. "Reporting" a post generates a notice linked to the offending post that goes to the moderators, including the site owner; one or more of us will have a look. Use good judgment, but in general the moderators would rather deal with a few false alarms than discover after the fact that a thread has gone nuclear. The report also gives you as A to Z member a safe place to vent your spleen about the inappropriateness (and the moderators might even agree). Responding in the original thread, on the other hand, makes a bigger mess for the moderator to clean up, especially if the post is trolling. For one thing, any post that quotes the offending material will almost certainly also need to be pruned to get rid of the offending material; for another, responding in kind is a good way to get yourself banned.
