# 1 Report Abuse button
03-16-2010, 08:29 AM
I believe the "Report Spam" button should be renamed "Report Abuse", and policies be set such that it can be used to report any kind of abuse of the Terms of Service in chat.

This would satisfy some of the people who object that strictly speaking, links to third-party websites are not "spam", but are still against the rules; just not the SPAM rules. It would also heavily encourage the reporting of racist comments, people screaming profanity, and other inappropriate behavior that is often not reported now because people think "hmm, that's not spam, reporting this is going to be a pain".

I would agree to the renaming of the link to report abuse fully. However, I do not encourage it for the use of reporting people screaming profanity UNLESS they do so bypassing the current filters in place.

Actually, I would suggest a Report Abuse button in addition to the Report Spam button. Spam is far more common, plus, people may not be aware that spam is qualified under the ToS, so they may use the Abuse button less.

/signed Sounds good to me, But think the report spam should still be around to traffic the correct report through. =)
