    Is there a way to report users or is there a report button? I don't have that option so I sent a message to the admin via "contact us".
    Is there another way to flag posts?

    Most of us have report buttons, but not all. We don't know why there is this discrepancy. You did exactly the right thing. I would say that you can also attempt to get a message to any of the known moderators.

    Just curious..What happens when you Report? Will a box come up so you can type in a reason in case the reported post isn't obvious as to why it was reported?

    Who do I contact in order to get this report button activated? I guess I will try to fill out the "contact us" form? (@TeacherGroupie would you be able to activate this option for me or point me to someone who can do this?)

    @TeacherGroupie is our go to person for all of these matters. Hoping that you will be able address your lack of a report button, or, perhaps what you would like to address. Best wishes.

    Alas, no mere A to Z moderator can help in this case. Fixing this requires fishing around in the entrails of the site software, and that is a prerogative reserved for the site owner. (The susurration you hear is TeacherGroupie quietly tiptoeing out of reach while whispering "Better the site owner than me...")

    On that note :whistle:

    I have spent the past half hour combing through the reported items and have unapproved a number of posts. For example, the Common Core thread is an interesting federal vs states jurisdiction issue. The value of the standards is grist for educational quality debate. When it becomes partisan and we start debasing each other and our belief systems, we lose the debate and it turns into Monty Python's Argument Sketch.

    Thank you for making these forums a great place for educators! I moderate 2 teacher forums on Facebook and know how difficult the task is sometimes.

    Thank you Pisces and Moderators. I was also very upset with the pattern and posts.

    Whoops! I just saw this and now know what you are talking about. I only saw some because I do not let myself get on here during the week. I did not rd all, but just figured the poster was passionate.
    So sorry! I put 1 up on common core because I was curious. The curiosity stemmed from 1 of those posts. I should have read through all of the posts because I never saw that poster attacking people.

    Sometimes it takes a little while for the troll to show their true colors and for the patterns to emerge.

    The graphic from earlier was meant to be funny after all of the DRAMA. Should I take the image down?
