I've never abused the flagging system, yet I'm only able to flag things about 5% of the time that I try. I no longer bother flagging anything, since it's a waste of my time nineteen of the twenty times that I bother (after all, I'm the one doing GiantBomb the favor).
What would be great is if we could just hide threads so they don't show up anymore. As long as I can get the three spam threads off the front screen so I can see the other discussions going on, I don't really give a fuck if everyone can see them or not.
Same. I have not been able to flag for god knows how long now. I only flagged spambots and a couple users who got way too offensive in the past yet it feels like I am the one who got punished. I tried PM'ing a mod months ago and still nothing. I will try again I guess.
