The staff at SFN prefers to moderate in moderation, and if someone finds a potentially offensive post they can always report the post to the appropriate moderator through PM. Such PMs are always treated with disgression.

You have a point though. Reporting an abusive post should be an easy task. Currently I don't think the Snitz-forum has such functionality implemented, which means that our web-master, @tomic will have to customize the forum generation engine. I haven't seen it in any other Snitz forums I've been to.

Other forum softwares have icons that one can click in order to single out specific posts.
For the moment, you will have to go the extra mile if you think a post is worth reporting.

How to adress a specific post in a thread:

1) get the URL to the page in which the post is, and copy it. In this case, page 3:
http://www.skepticfriends.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3650&whichpage=3

2) Find the post of your choice, and click the reply-with-quote button.

3) Once the reply-page has opened, examine the URL:

http://www.skepticfriends.org/forum/post.asp?method=ReplyQuote&REPLY_ID=53757&TOPIC_ID=3650&FORUM_ID=18

The blue bolded number, 53757 is the id-number of the post.

4) add the bracket sign '#' and the number, to the URL you copied in the first stage:

http://www.skepticfriends.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3650&whichpage=3#53757

5) Done! You may now hide the link in the URL-forum code:
[url="put your link here inside quotation marks"]Dr. Mabuse's post[/url]


Result: Dr. Mabuse's post

If you want to address a specific post in a thread that is locked or archived where you can't find the reply-with-quote icon, then you'll need to examine the HTML source code of the page, and that my friends is not for the timid. Better ask a HTML-savvy forum member for help.

The reason I ask is that the forum I manage has this feature and it is quite handy. That forum has well over 20,000 members though, so it gets used.

My bet is that you're not using the Snitz software either, but a php-based... Am I right?

You need to navigate the html source until you find their post. This is easiest in firefox because there is an option to show the html code of what your mouse has selected.

To do this, the easiest way is to take a line out of the post, such as "Link that you click" from pleco's first post, and search for it in the source. Once you find it, you're in business.

Once you find the text to their post, put your mouse cursor somewhere in there. Then click search previous, or search up, and search for "<a name" without the quotes. After the "name" will be an equals sign, and then a number. This is the number you want. After the url to the page:

http://www.skepticfriends.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5537

Put # and then the number. Mab's post is:

<a name="82943">

So I would do:

http://www.skepticfriends.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5537#82943

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.
