134. I guess I'm not one to categorize posts so specifically as others. "General Discussion" seems to be
a misnomer around here.

Alerting on posts isn't my first response unless I believe the DU Rules have been willfully and maliciously violated.

An honest question was asked, in a forum called "General Discussion". In my opinion, the answer you cite was in response to something that was mean spirited, and uncalled for.

I don't "gladly" alert on ANYTHING. I reserve that action for things that truly make me feel bad.
