Not too sure about abused, I thought that was the whole idea of moderators to action punishment to anyone who is reported for abusing the system?
Holding off an idea because of a minority may do something is odd indeed. Same as making the site with a forum, some people will abuse it, but you have moderators/admins to keep that under control
I would have thought anyway
I get what you're saying, but I think Neobond also was right, afterall, mods aren't online 24/7 and they can only act once they recieve a report or two.
But if a few users who have been (at the risk of using an unaccepatble word) 'butthurt' suddenly report something mods have no choice to let pass for some reason or other, then decide to contact admin, the admin are just going to get annoyed and frustrated, this eventually would lead to a drop in quality on the site as staff would just start thinking, 'what's the point?'
It's a nice idea, but a user needs advice on a certain item, or way of executing a certain task, I'd suggest contacting anyone with an MVC title, in a polite manner, or use the search to see if the problem has been answered in a previous thread.
