Is there a reason why I cannot report posts ?
I tried to report http://forums.winamp.com/member.php?u=532993 for their advert/spam post, but get told I cannot access that part of the site.

....actually why is anyone blocked from reporting a post or user here ?
I must assume it is standard, unless someone changed my settings.
That is not something to be withheld or earned
I moderate several gamer sites, and in comparison this forum is like a Womens Institute cake sale, with the occasional dispute over the best biscuit-base, buttery-biscuit bass... *apologies*.
Taking away the ability to report is always an option, but at that point you would probably be banning someone that abusive anyway.

This site is now mostly just the core Winamp fans and visiting spammers.
Maybe it is time to re-evaluate the defaults and why, for your current users please.
