I never noticed that. Hmmm... I can't find an option for me to change it in the AdminCP, so it is probably a part of the template. I will send a note to Larry to change it.

Got any suggestions as to what should be there? Or just nothing?

But the report function can be used to let us know other things, too.

Maybe it should just have example uses listed? Suck as, "This may be used to alert moderators of situations in need of attention, such as spam, advertising, flaming, or other questionable posts." Something along those lines?

I think we should at least put a small guideline somewhere though. Not in that window but somewhere else.
