Hi Everyone,

I want to say thank you to all the volunteers for moderation. We now have
20+ moderators from all parts of the world who can clean up the spam

If you encounter spam. Please use the "flag offensive" button to notify the
moderators. Moderators have a button which can block and account and delete
all content from that user.

We are also working with the Askbot team on improving the moderation
workflow adding rate limiting and implementing pre-moderating watched

Jack, I don't know if the ability to get emails about flags is possible at
the moment. We'll look at adding that as a feature with the new workflow.
