Some concern has been expressed to me recently about people potentially not liking to click on the 'report abuse' button when they are concerned about a particular post, so I just wanted to explain how this process works and when it should be used.
If you have ANY concerns about a post you have read on the NRAS HU forum we want to know about it. If you click on the button next to the offending post to report it to us you will then be able to explain briefly what has concerned you. It might be that you feel the comment was abusive or upsetting, or it may just be that you feel it was misguided or giving incorrect information.
When you report a post, HealthUnlocked and the NRAS admins will be made aware of this and will take action that they consider appropriate. This may be as serious as removing the person who has made the post, but is more likely to involve a private message to the individual who posted it, asking them to remove their post or making them aware of the concerns for future reference. In some cases we may decide that no action is needed and that no forum rules have been broken, but in all cases we would rather a post was reported than find out that it had upset people but that we hadn't had a chance to look at resolving this for them.
If you have any questions, please feel free to comment on this post or send me a private message through HealthUnlocked.
