    Of course this could increase the workload of moderators and end up in long winding discussions.
    Whenever someone reports a post, a thread is created in the Reports forum, which only the mods can see.

    The variable visibility thing you're talking about isn't a feature of vBulletin though; if it exists it's a add-on modification (like [youtube] tags).

    Are you sure about that?

    If the normal users group is given access to the reports forum and the "Can view others threads" permission is set to No, wouldnt that achieve variable visibilty. I am not sure what version of VB the current forum runs on but this should be available in 3.5 onwards

    It's never something I've encountered; you could be right though.

    I do think it's an awful idea anyway, ftr.

    I would like to report Athlai for being a massive ****. This appears to be an appropriate enough place. WAC.

    yes I agree that it can backfire if members start to debate moderators action regarding the reported post.

    OT, but does anyone else get a Malware screen pop up when looking at the Cricket Look a likes thread?

    It must be on one of the recent pages, because I clicked on an earlier page and that worked fine.
