This isn't really a complaint or request for change, just really something interesting that I noted.

On others posts, I have three options - SPAM, QUOTE and RATE IT. On my own posts, I have only the options for SPAM and QUOTE.

I just found it interesting that I am unable to rate myself, but am able to call myself a spammer.

Has anyone ever indicated that a email they posted was spam?

I consider everything I post as spam and act accordingly.

How soon we forget the infamous Wocca and spamming his own posts. But, he's really the only one I've ever seen flag their own. Oh, and Phil when he finally got "the button"... Okay - so the only two examples I can remember at this time.

Isa heads off to flag all of her posts as spam...

Hmm, good point Greg :) I think the main reason is that we missed it when setting up the system as it's not overly necessary. The reason we remembered the 'Rate It' one is that it's more prone to misuse and every member has it, regardless of their 'title'....

Only after a member reaches 'respected member' can they flag others as spam, so it's much less prone to abuse (plus it can be unflagged by others and the ratings can't!).

But yes, it would be cleaner if this wasn't available for your own posts

It had to be done, it was too good not to do it... And who else can claim ever to have reported Sam and all the Moderators as Spam???

{Phil goes off to think how he can use his new powers in a creativily silly way...}

Apart from you, Phil, there was actually another member who had reported my post as spam.

Thanks, Greg. You've made a good point here...how can I forget to rate myself as spammer??? Too eccentric...
