Ok, so I don’t exactly enjoy making threads about negative topics, but I really think that this is an issue on the forums that needs to be addressed. People flagging a post simply because they disagree with the person’s opinion.
If someone isn’t breaking any rules, being overly negative, or offensive to you, but has an opinion that you disagree with, don’t flag the post. Respond to it with a reasonable argument if you feel the need, but censoring someone because they have a different opinion is quite frankly an abuse of the flag button.
It’s there for a reason, and that reason is not because someone disagrees with you. I’ve had numerous posts taken down, and even an automated temporary ban simply because I made posts about an opinion that I had that wasn’t very popular. None of these posts were offensive or obscene in any way whatsoever.
I’m not asking forum mods to change anything, just simply asking the community as a whole to not censor people that haven’t done anything wrong.
