So, I looked into this. Yeah, this is an example of where the reportign system fails us.
- The WoW forums use chars, not Bnet accounts, so people can have 8 X 50 chars per bnet account to use for likes, reports, and posts. Much sockpuppeting can happen.
- We can’t explain patterns of behavior in a report. So while an individual post might look sort of ok alone, when it is taken as a pattern it is directed and targeted harassment.
I know who some of the folks involved in all this are. It makes me want to just grab people by the ear, put them all in time out, and tell them all to IGNORE each other on the forums - with the ignore feature.
The targeted harassment is not ok though, and I don’t know how to get a message to mods about it.
Edit - yeah, one of the posts involved does come off as a personal threat. I see it has been reported though.
