The report button in posts is now gone. As yu can see there is now a black square in its place. This is because too many people were using the report button to reply to posts instead of what its supposed to be for; alerting a moderator about an inappropriate post.

So, if you need to report a post, click on the black rectangle.

Maybe you could change the word from 'report' to 'report abuse' ?

I will kick around a few more ideas and post back.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

I too still see a "report" button, not a black rectangle.

But I know there must have been one there not too long ago
as the screen shot JEServices provides in the new BC game shows the black rectangle.

:flowers: Ayup, sneaking little thing that "cache"...

I'd have probably still been looking for "Hidden little black boxes"
this same time tomorrow.
