Well if you lost 200 points then you had to at least spam once. Also doesn't that flaging system work by somebody flaging a post, then it gets sent to a list and then the Mods delete the ones that are spam? If this is true then how can people just go flag crazy if it goes through the Mods anyways. Well I'm not entirely sure about how flagging works, but I'm just saying.

Guys, point lose is not always synonymous with spamming. There are times when there are clean ups of the forum and comments. For example, if you have posted in any topic that has been locked it will eventually be deleted. This can lead to a significant lose in points.

Oh, I never knew that Asherlee. Thanks for clearing up more of my understanding off flagging. Well I don't think that I have ever lost points, but it's bound to happen because I have posted on topics that got locked.

You guys need to learn not to be so attached to your points!

Comments and forum topics are cleared out periodically, and with those, points will be lost. Some of them will be because they are SPAM, others will be because there has been some forum cleaning. Most times however, this should not add up to a lot of points.

Also, randomly flagged comments are not deleted. The admins review the flagged comments before deleting them. So that would not be an issue.

that may be true but some things that have been deleted were actually very useful... what about that loss of valuable information?

royandgrand, it does not delete all flagged comments. Flagged comments go up for review, they are then reviewed and deleted. They do not just delete every single flagged comment, there is a review process involved.
