Is there a way to report duplicate stories or fake news to the moderators on LBN?

Is there a way to report duplicate stories or fake news to the moderators on LBN? Or report fake new in other foras? If not, could this feature be added? Thanks!

1. At the bottom of every post is "alert abuse" click it and follow the instructions.

2. For duplicate stories in LBN,

click on the alert button for the thread and choose the option for "OP content" which will provide a dialog box to enter commentary. Enter a response such as "Duplicate thread" and the URL for the first thread on the topic. Those alerts are forwarded to the forum hosts to decide whether to lock the duplicate threads.

Generally the forum hosts do not get involved with checking the validity of news sources in LBN, but they may respond in rare instances.
