    Very; my heart skipped a beat. But I'll only believe it once you post in the MC flip flop threak.
    Is this the one about flip flop shoes -- in which case I have posted that I've never worn a pair -- or another thread about a flip flop change of way?

    Can we change the button for reporting posts? Perhaps make it 2 buttons (one for spam and one for fighting/bad material)? That way it will be much easier to report spam if someone doesn't have to do anything but click once.

    This seems mighty lazy, doesn't it?

    Ah, the Internet age. George Jetson's got nothing on us.

    I suppose it's lazy to want to do something in 1/5 of the time, but I prefer to call it efficient? And something that would benefit everyone, not just one user.

    Saving time is an honorable goal but when that time is about 2 seconds, saving 4/5 of it is pretty negligible, even for extremely busy people, and even if one reports spam 10x a day.

    Would be even easier if we required the spam to be self reporting. Save even more time.

    I reported this and became annoyed by the inefficiency of the process so I'm now fully on board with haggadah's proposal

    Yes, but it could result in the part being greater than the whole. Or, we could have a thread devoted to clothing issues, one devoted to snark, etc.

    A lot of us would love that.

    we could make it a subforum of CE and raise the level of discourse a little. No place for it in DT without a poll.
