Recently I got suspended from the chat because 2 of my posts were flagged and the flag "accepted"; one referenced Islam as people believing in a "magic sky man" or something, the other mentioned masturbation in a way that only the most puritanical person could find offensive:
I have also seen this happen to other people. Something should be changed about the flagging system to stop these suspensions happening so easily. It can easily be used by puerile or malicious people to shut down discussion they don't like, which isn't good for chat. As far as I know, these flags gets sent to every user with more than 10k rep, so having one or two of them "accept" the flag is very likely. In short: it's way too easy to flag something and get someone suspended from chat.
The flagging system should be overhauled; maybe so that if there are appropriate mods in the room, they should see the flag and no-one else should. Maybe so that more people (maybe 10?) have to click "Accept" on the flag for it to actually suspend the user; suspension is a very harsh thing that should usually be left to a mod. Maybe so that there is some warning sent to a user before they actually get suspended; a 3-strikes-and-you're-out system or whatever. There are many ways to improve it.
What's more, there should definitely be some accountability for actually flagging stuff. People frivolously flagging posts should be investigated and get warning and/or suspensions themselves. Right now, it seems like they can just do this with impunity and that sucks.
Not that I'm going to, but I could start creating accounts with various different IP addresses, getting a bit of rep, then go around causing havoc in chat by flagging stuff left, right, and centre. The system's way too easy to abuse at the moment.
