1. The Alert button
is to alert the mods if someone appears to be a right wing disruptor, or if you feel someone is being abusive with their posts.

2. Nothing if you want to 'alert' a thread
But if you do it inadvertantly, you will be banned.




















Just kidding.

You alert the mods to a thread that may have violations of DU rules
especially a poster that could be a troll/disruptor

It rips the fabric of the space-time continuum! We could all die!

Just kidding. :-)

If you see a post that personally attacks another member, or that looks like it could be from someone who does not share our goals and is trying to disrupt the forum, you hit the "alert" button to let a moderator (like me) know, so we can investigate, warn and remove those violations. Please use the alert button as often as you see fit.
