Does anybody actually check if a post has been flagged to see if the flag is valid?
Can anybody flag, or must they be a member? (like you must be to post)
What happens to people that repeatedly go around flagging?
How do we know this won't be used to harass people? I know some people that like to go on CL and flag all thier competetors' adds til they get deleted, and one of them is also a member here.

Flagging is the same as Reporting on the old system. You have to be a member to report / flag a post.

Moderators appreciate those members who assist us by flagging / reporting problem items. Nothing bad happens to the member doing the reporting.

Moderators are very good at knowing what reports need attention and what just needs watching. We don't remove posts or give warnings just because it was reported...it needs to be warranted.

Hope that answered your questions.
