Is one flag sufficient to draw attention to an obnoxious poster?


Or is it better if multiple members flag a potential 'problem child?' I have seen the (1x) a number of times but I have not seen (2x) or (3x) ... I realize that an offensive post can be edited by those that have the power so that others don't see what generated the original flag, but then it doesn't get a 2d or 3d flag. Is one flag sufficient, or if it looks like it needs attention, should it get multiple flags?

One flag will call attention. Multiple flags make a point.

Yes, multiple flags are permitted.

HI late, yes, we see the flagged post right away, as soon as we connect. And it is true what Niz says, to make a point, you can flag it twice. We then may consider to ban the person, after searching for more inadequate threads by them.

Sometimes this happens with spam.
