Unwanted editing


#202

I agree. It is much better than being edited posts by mods by their personal standards without any pre-notice of the standards nor note that the posts are edited by mods.


#203

Just be aware that the Flag system, while giving the appearance of confidentiality, is decidedly not so, and authors of posts you flag will be informed that you have done so.
If that sort of thing is important to you.


#204

Oh! Um … that’s interesting. And makes me significantly more hesitant to flag posts.


#205

Yeah, kind of defeats the whole purpose of the deal


#206

wow :man_facepalming:t2:


#207

That’s not true. What is true (and was specifically true in your case, and is what I assume that you are referring to) is that if you are involved in a contentious exchange with another poster, we may mention that you have indicated that you are unhappy with that person’s posting in conversations with them.


#208

It is true.
The last 4 times I’ve flagged posts (by more than one poster), the poster was informed that I had done so. In only one case was there any prior contact directly between myself and the poster.


#209

Any more details? I only know about the situation I was involved in, which I described above.


#210

Anyway, like I said


#211

I can only assume you’re referring to the single long running situation with a single poster which took a lot of conversation to resolve.


#212

I don’t think so. In my experience, @tempogain and @yyy are way too cautious and jealous of users’ privacy. The thing is that sometimes you are too obvious @Rocket.


#213

Four times I flagged
Four times the poster was informed that I had done so.

Pretty sure that makes my point.


#214

Sometimes people may draw conclusions. I often tell someone “your post was flagged”, while not mentioning by who. Especially if they’re regular posters, they might put 2 and 2 together.


#215

Hey, if @Rocket has access to special information like what mods and admins tell other people, I also want that privilege!!!


#216

Give me some more details and I’ll be happy to address it. If it happens again perhaps? I can’t speak to anything except the situation we previously discussed.


#219

I just tested this and it only applies to a flag you made, not other people’s flags.


#220

How about just asking someone to flag one of your posts and check if you can see it?
Or go ahead and flag one of mine and I’ll tell you if I can see it or not.


#221

He does, in liquids and solids.
