"Meta" suggestion; Flagging

@John, @Aaron (et. al.),
It would be nice if there were a forum option to "flag" a post; then if a user sees something problematic (violates ToS, duplicate post, etc.) that post could be elevated to mod's attention.
I'm not sure if GetSatisfaction has this feature or not, but several widely used BBs (StackOverflow, zenforum) do.

Also, Direct [Private] Messages and Markdown processing would be really handy. Although those I'd put lower than flagging in a "wishlist".

Hey Steel,

Those are great ideas, but it looks like GetSat does not support them right now. Heck, even the now standard @tagging does not actually ping those of us who are on here. Let me see if I can find a way to create an email channel where users on this forum can message our employees directly about things that need to be flagged. At least that might provide a stopgap for the time being.
