1. Honestly, a bunch of alerts fall in that category, but I've never hit that button.

2. It is your subjective opinion after evaluating the alert. It comes up only when you deem the alert

"clearly not in violation or whatever rule was indicated"... (or however, it is worded in the jury choice).

Rarely, but sometimes, it is apparent that a series of alerts may be targeted based on subject matter or individual. That's when I might consider indicating a belief that the alert was "sent in bad faith." The implications are that if enough jurors select this, then the DUer who alerted is given a time-out from further alerts for a time period.

Usually, I give benefit-of-the-doubt, though.

4. more specifically i meant.........

how many people on a jury have to hit that before it triggers something, and what does it trigger? does the alerter get suspended or something?

6. No. I assume it is a majority of jury, but it gives the alerter a time out for some period of time.

Not permanent unless it continues to be a problem at the decision of admins.

3. presume admin keeps track.

i will hit that if i think it is someone who just wants someone to shut up.
cant see them banning someone for being an alert troll, but i can see it being part of a picture of a troll that brings the ban hammer.

5. I selected that option once.

It was because someone alerted on a poster and it in no way deserved an alert. It made absolutely no sense as to why anyone would alert that post. My only guess was that they were trying to stir up mess.
