Question to SCN mentors

Hi All,

I am contributing continuosly in Workflow forums regularly. Now my question is it right way to abuse any thread or reply if it is irrelevant to the post, because I have already abused so many replies and post. Does this kind of behaviour have any impact on my posts , from SCN .

But seriously , Iam only abusing those post's which are clearly representing the post for points.

Thanks & Regards

Pavan

    Yes, your ID will be put into a special database of people who rat and snitch. Then you will be told you are doing a good job and given a wire to wear when you meet those who you reported through the abuse button.

    T00th.

    P.S - This is a Coffee Corner answer and should be taken seriously. Or you land in another database of people who don't take the CC seriously.

    ahem, do you mean the verb abuse the way Sameer already seems to have understood it? i.e., as 'pressing the abuse button' ? funny usage if that's the case 😊

    To abuse a thread and to report a thread for abuse are two rather different things...

    Perhaps what you are refering to are the posts you make directly in the forum as responses to silly questions or people answering them (in the hope of earning themselves points, a second shrubbery, etc, without adding value).

    Personally, I am very appreciative when people all show their opinions (also in the forum) of what they think of the question or some of the answers. When done in a civil way and still related to the question in some way or another then it is better, as those threads sometimes even turn around into interesting discussions and the spammers generally avoid such threads because they are clueless.

    But when you notice frustration setting in and wanting to shout at people because it is really pathetic, then please rather use the Abuse Reports system. Most other people are not interested in flame wars so moderators can discretely remove them (although the one or two flame wars can be entertaining as well).

    When people are "hard of hearing" (which is frustrating, I know) then my personal tactic is to frustrate them back again. They soon get tired of loosing everything except their most stupid question or answer (as a warning to others who do a check on the OP before answering).

    They realise that abusing the forums is not helpfull to them either.

    Now, to your question: I can imagine that someone somewhere must already have hit the monitor while an SDN thread was displayed, but the damage is local so any SDN Coffee Corner folks would not be affected. There is no documented history of anyone ever having pulled a brown-eye at an SDN forum thread without noticing that the webcam was activated - is that what you are concerned about? 😉

    Cheers,

    Julius

    Actually...We're are SAP Mentors and not SCN Mentors...

    Also...Not all SAP Mentors are also Moderators...Moderator handle threads marked as "Abuse"...So better ask Moderators instead of SAP Mentors... -:)

    Greetings,
