As an aside here, I've accidentally flagged two comments now while scrolling the site on my iPhone, due to my thumb happening to fall on the "flag" link. This annoys me, since I'm not the sort of person who flags anyone's posts generally, unless they're really beyond the pale, and I don't wish to be viewed as that sort of person, even behind the scenes - and I don't want posts to get sent to the Alternate Thread in error due in part to a genuine mistake.

Would it be too much to ask for a little box that appears when you hit that link that asks for some sort of further confirmation of the action about to be taken, perhaps with some brief rationale for flagging? They had such a dinky little thing on the forum, and it was useful…

If you mean anything else, well, haven't you already conceded that you don't know what the shit you're talking about?

Billy - don't be ridiculous. You tarred an entire forum as being dicks. You shouldn't whine when the same piss-poor tactic is jokingly thrown back at yourself.

He's being facetious and satirical, Billy. Watch the YouTube clip… and yes, you don't know the story, and since you don't wish to know, I won't attempt to begin to tell you. Thankfully Richard Dawkins himself knows some of the more important details, and I'm quite satisfied with that…
