Alert Button - how often have you alerted on something posted at DI?

I am asking the good people of DI if you have alerted on another poster here. Has there been a post you find that breaks the rules? Or many posts?

I never have. How about you?

1. Some douche bag made fun of a downs kid

Clearly alertable. But as the poster was a con, it stood.

2. That reminds me of a recent president making fun of his bowling, equating it to the special olympics

23. Mea culpa!

Felt terrible after I did it. I took it down myself. It was stupid and wrong and not in character for me in any way. I'll continue to apologize at every opportunity.

24. I was not referring to you

I went back and reviewed my history, it was a dbag named tendiesforbreakfast. You are a one of the good, rational posters here....

3. In the very beginning

I alerted once.

Never did again.

Sometimes I see something that I think is alert-worthy, but knowing that so much else just as bad will go unalerted, I figured why bother...

So yeah. Only once.

4. I can only think of twice

One was that late night health spammer we used to have and that was just to see how the whole alert thing worked more than anything else.
The second time was something that was just so far over the top it deserved it but somebody beat me to it on that one...I'm sure a few people beat me to it actually

5. Tough to say..I'm not opposed to it.

Name calling will do it for me. Snark is fine. Outright snotty name-calling will nab an alert from me.

Anti-Semitic shit, too. Racism is a tough call as it's usually underhanded, so not worthwhile. Everybody says an alert signals "snowflake". But I judge an alert by how we would conduct ourselves in person. You calling me a troll wouldn't faze me. But calling me an asshole gets an alert. Unless I like you. Some guys here, I enjoy the back & forth and won't bother. I'm no angel.

EDA: fuck you, spammers. You get no love

7. I appreciate that.

As I posted here before, some posters have been uber cool with me. Despite being ideologically opposed with me. A nice pm or a considerate response. I value these people's opinion.

This site is designed to bring opposing ideologies together. Simply saying "you suck" is meaningless. There are people here who recognize that. I'll stand by them regardless of ideology. And thanks for being cool, whoever you may be, honestly.

I hope that comes across in my posts. I try..though I may, at times, seem exhausting.
DI is my favorite pit stop aside from Reddit.

15. When this site first came online, I alerted on several spam posts

that were pure gibberish or advertising a product. Those have stopped.

Other than that, I have rarely alerted on a post.

20. The Ignore Function is great

I just try to be polite with those I disagree with.

So far, that's worked.

but it had already been alerted. Really doesn't seem much point at any rate.

21. I have hit the alert button exactly once.

The response that I received back was that the post had already been alerted on, and the jury did vote to hide it.

That stated, I'm feeling a bit more cranky recently towards those who push the limits.

25. Twice

One for a spammer selling knockoff purses or somesuch, and once for someone calling for the assassination of a former President.

Probably voted to hide a dozen or less times in way more than 100 juries.

Nobody on ignore ever, either.

If you came to party, party. Don't just sit in the corner and tut-tut at people. You're at the same party.

26. I never alert. I'm not the delicate snowflake Cons seem to think liberals are. Which is ironic since

in my experience the most delicate snowflakes have been Cons.
