    I only flag if I think someone is selling something.  If I don’t agree with someone or feel like I’d be arguing all night, I just don’t reply and watch the thread for a little while.

    I’ve only ever flagged for self-promotion. Even when I’ve been personally attacked I didn’t flag… Guess I’ve just never felt offended in a way to go “oh well I’ll just flag you, take that” lol

    I only think I’ve flagged something other than self-promotion once or twice.

    It was when someone was totally out of line towards another poster.

    You should add a “good flags” option. I’ve only flagged once, and it was a “this is a great post” flag. I guess I haven’t been around long enough to see any self promotion, though I would if I saw it.

    i just posted this under the sticky post made by MS for all the new bees.

    Hi Ladies!! welcome to the bee! This can be an awesome community, amazing place for advice, laughter and a shoulder to cry on. Just please, please make sure you read and understand the ToS….unfortantly if they are not followed you are at risk of bring banned and kicked out of the bee forever.

    Hopefully there are changes being made with the ToS, certain MODS and the abilty for us to delete our own post (which we cant do now, you have to request a MOD to do so). But until then, read the ToS, understand them and enjoy the HIVE!!

    i have never flagged a post….if im offended by something someone wrote…i make the choice as an ADULT not to read it. plain and simple!

    I have flagged blatant snarkiness (not normal sarcastucness as I tend to be realtively sarcistic myself irl), isms, self promotion, and harrassment/attacking.

    I feel like as adults we should know better than to be rude or inconsiderate to a stranger we have never met. When I feel like rolling my eyes and typing a mean repsonse to a thread or a post, I close out rather than post and get myself flagged.

    I also flag good posts 🙂

    I don’t flag.  I am scared to, now, because it seems like the mods just kick people off with no warning if they get flagged.  I *HOPE* nobody ever flags me, because I don’t wanna wake up to no more WB account.  I try to not be offensive, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.  If I don’t like something, I click off of it.

    I’ve never flagged anything (even when someone wrote very hurtful things to me and even called me names!) I just look the other way and avoid a fight if I can.

    I’ve only flagged once aside from spam. I don’t even bother with the self promotion. The poster had boarded the crazy train and was way out of line.

    I only flag blatant spam.

    Example: New user with 5-10 posts and every single post is “Hey, buy this! [link to spammer’s website]” posted on random threads.
