New Settings & Flagging Tools
More »

LJ has added a new tool that allows users to flag inappropriate or offensive content. Trolls everywhere just got wood. This is going to be exploited by all the wrong people and used as a means of revenge on those that don't deserve the shitstorm they're about to see.

I see this as possibly being a good thing used in a bad, bad, baaaad way. I'm not even going into the censorship angle. Oh, my poor lj_abuse team friends...

Not that, the flagging system is what I am talking about - for the people who have to work Abuse, it'll be plenty problematic.

Censorship, for starters. Besides, you and I both know LJ asshats that will flag others simply to be asshats - which will be a big clusterfuck for Abuse.

No, but can you really blame them for it? It IS Muskrat Love for fuck's sake.

Shame I'm not an asshat - I'd so flag the shit out of the religious communities.

Hell, people are already starting to flag really ridiculous things specifically to cause problems for Abuse, because obviously going after the customer service buttmonkey is the way to get a business to do what you want ...
