I have posted on the ADN.COM Comments section several times. Can you tell me or direct me to correct department to find out what Recommend or Report Abuse means at the end of every posting?
I understand the report abuse but not sure what or who recommends?
Comments can be displayed several ways, depending on which way you prefer. The default is "newest first," but you could choose to display "most recommended." If you, as a reader, think a comment is especially good, you can hit the recommend button. That will move up that comment when other readers look at most recommended comments. Look for the drop-down menu "Showing" just above the first comment to select the display you prefer.
The abuse button allows readers who believe that a particular comment violates our user guidelines to flag that comment for review by me or another editor. The abuse button is not a tool to say "I disagree with or dislike this comment." When three users flag a comment, that makes the comment "click to see" until it has been reviewed by our staff and either deleted or unhidden.
