Flag as offensive - not visible

From the policy page:

Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to do any of the following:

• Hit the "flag as offensive" button at the bottom of the post in question.....

I don't see a button for that. Do other users have it or is the information obsolete?

Are you using your first few hours of liberty to kick the anthill again?  Or are you just genuinely confused?

Anyway, that button hasn't been there since the "upgrade" those many months ago.  The revised protocol has been discussed, but if you didn't see it, it amounts to "PM Meg" if you find something offside.

I don't know why you would ask that, or why you use the word "again"; are you just looking for something to kick? (Joke, joke - don't shoot!)

Thanks for the info. It's something missing on the forum then, not on my browser or in my perception. I haven't been here long (on the forum, as opposed to the planet :)) so I'm not familiar with any historic protocols, upgrades or conflicts between the policy write-up and the reality of the web pages. I'm just an old guy who enjoys exploratory discussion of almost anything so long as it's courteous  & good natured - always allowing for friendly banter/teasing (sometimes misinterpreted online, but one only has to ask as you have done) plus the occasional deliberate disrupter. If I've been labelled a troll that's puzzling & hurtful, and I don't understand why. Only hope to be taken at face value.
