Default "report post to moderator/admin" button?

I noticed that other forums I am on have a button next to the quote and edit button that says "report post to moderator or admin". Anyone think this is a good idea to have one? i think it'* a pretty good idea to report a post and a admin/mod can catch it in time and prevent flaming/and or spamming.

i think the PM button works just fine for this

I mean how many time does a Normal Member need to PM a Admin or Mod about a post. We dont need to Flood them with stuff all the time

I think a PM will sufice, maybe at a later date with continued growth of the club and increased number of members, but a this time i dont see a need for it.

If you feel a post to be very out of line or what-not, then PM a mod that is online and we will determine what to do with it.

other wise just leave it be and one of use will find and fix it.

the nice thing that I could see coming from that is that if by pressing a report button it sent a message to a central location where all the moderators could see it. This way if the moderator that you sent it to doesn't sign on for 8 hours there is still a chance of it getting looked at beforehand.

PM a Moderator or Admin that'* currently logged in. It'* rare that we don't have at least one or two Staff online at any given time.

I'm usually hidden, but if you can tell from my posts that I'm logged in, hit me if there'* nobody else.

I actually do grunt work from time to time when the Moderators are slacking in the Lounge.
