Tweak "flagged for review" text to make it clearer

Travel Forums System Talk Tweak "flagged for review" text to make it clearer

I've seen quite a few cases lately (most recently here) where a post by a spammer (or rude member) was flagged for review by a moderator, and the original poster of the thread thought that their entire thread was up for review, and wondered what they'd done wrong.

I think this confusion can easily be prevented by a slight tweak to the wording of the message.
Right now:

This entry has been reported by one of our Respected Members or Travel Gurus. This is most likely because it broke the forum rules, which it could've done by being a promotional post, containing an email address, being a duplicate post, or being inflammatory.

Suggested change:

This post by [membername] has been reported by one of our Respected Members or Travel Gurus. This is most likely because it broke the forum rules, which it could've done by being a promotional post, containing an email address, being a duplicate post, or being inflammatory.

"This reply" would be even clearer than "This post", but then you'd need to distinguish between first post and followup.

Fair observation. I've made the change :)
