        Not technically, no. But I believe users on Reddit can be issued warnings if they abuse the report feature, which many of them do.

        Not that I would know, having not been on Reddit since June.

          I got a warning for reporting the comment-reposting bots. Basically their reply was there’s nothing to report because it’s not against the rules.

          I don’t believe lemmy notifies users if their report is dismissed. I started off messaging users and telling them what action (of any) I was going to take. But there’s too many of them now so I either dismiss them, or delete the offending comment and give the person who violated the rules a warning.

      You know who doesn’t act like asshats when they get banned? Spammers. Even spammers are like “yeah I get it” lol.

    I have a youtube account and was once accused of stealing content from my own reddit account, which had identical usernames. Plus the reddit account had a link to the youtube channel and vice versa.

    … but even tho it was a bit of a brain fart, I still appreciate that people are looking out for potential content thieves. I’m not even mad - I’d rather get a false positive every now and then instead of having my content stolen (again).

    No idea why this is just a screenshot of a Word document but the source is this.

    42_words was (is?) a user who ran a sub of the same name. Every post, including this one, had 42 words. So does this comment.

      The photo is literally a screenshot of that tweet, just not in dark mode. Why on earth would it be from a word document?! Or was that addition purely so you could make your comment 42 words long? Like this one is.

          Hey, we only accept responses that are 42 words long in this thread. You best try again.

          Hmm, wonder what else I can say to get this to 42 words. Wouldn’t you know it, this is just enough to make it work.

        Light/dark mode aside, why didn’t you include the source in the screenshot?

          Because lemmy’s rules state no identifying information. It’s in the side bar too.

      Reminds me of the time I got into an argument on Twitter, and I asked someone for proof of something, and they sent me a screenshot of a Wordpad document. I said I was born in the afternoon, but not that afternoon.

    I run a porn community and one of my posts got reported for being NSFW. On an NSFW community. On an NSFW instance. I don’t know what they were expecting.

    Now do the right thing and block yourself from the sub you are moderating.

      Funnily enough you can’t do that. You also can’t remove yourself as a mod if you created the community.

        you can if there’s other mods no?

        since it’s Reddit you can also just remove your account

          Nope. Check out !badrealestate and you’ll see this account as mod and a few other SomeoneElse that are me. And there’s somebody29 which is an alt account I no longer use. I can’t remove it as mod as I used it to create the community. I believe the instance owner can remove it but they haven’t replied to me.

    Image Transcription:

    Black text on a white background reading:

    "So somebody just explained to me how what I’d just posted to a subreddit wasn’t suitable for that sub.

    I replied that, as the creator, moderator and basically only contributor to said subreddit, I respectfully disagreed.

    And he reported me.

    To me."

    Yeah i used to moderate and i’ve actually had my own posts and comments reported on my own sub.

    Also i got in an argument once and they threatened to report me, not understanding that i had been the main moderator for 8 years.
