    The lack of concern about breach of confidentiality caused by reporting to one person that their thread report has been merged into another person's, and showing that second person's name, is a bit disturbing. When will this be rectified?

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    Agreed. Rule number 1 for whistle blowing is that it must be confidential. At the moment it's not. This appears to be a feature of the software, rather than the moderation policy or process.
     
  3. It might be a software feature/bug, but the simple workaround of NOT MERGING REPORTS would stop it occurring.

    There appears to be a glitch and this is the first time that we have been made aware of it. Who else has received these notifications?

  6. Of course, that is asking people to announce that they have at some point reported posts...
    But yes, I've had similar.

    Right, I shall see if I can find out what is going on and fix it.

    It has long been the case. I've had several over the years.

    I have. I used the "Contact Us" form to make mods aware of it. :rolleyes:

    I think this is related to the wider problem that mods apparently don't experience the site like us mere mortals do. Do they use the "Report" link on discussions where they are participants or do they just edit shoot?

    "Contact Us Form" is for contacting the site, not the mods.

    I genuinely have no record of that.

    Speculating about what you think we do or don't do isn't helpful. Please don't do that.

    Could you slam the door to speculation shut by saying what you do or don't do?

    You wouldn't want that - it would be very long and boring.;)
