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...

There is rate limiting on how often you can flag things, and if your account is too new you can't flag anything. So while there will certainly be trolls abusing it, hopefully the impact on Abuse won't be too bad. :)

It's not bad. :) It's just a matter of people being nervous about not having 100% control over their own stuff. Even though nothing happens until the Abuse Team checks it over, many are skeptical about it anyway.

And aside from the issue of censorship, I'm sorry for all of the Abuse folks who are going to have to deal with yet MORE abject bullshit.

The first one, not the second.

There are people who believe that any approving mention of same-sex anything is inappropriate for people under 18 and will take up arms to suppress it.

That's an example of why this is a problem.
