I don't know how I'd feel about reviews being flagged for words-- this is an adult community where speech like "cunt" or "cock" or really graphic language thrives. What one may say is offensive may certainly not be to someone else. However, if on the chance there's a review that has hate speech or extremely offensive remarks that the majority of readers find distasteful, why can't you just email the Administrator about it? I'm afraid allowing readers to flag reviews would require a lot of time and energy for staff to sort through and re-read what they already once approved (if it's a verified review)..
I hadn't meant 'language' as in swearing - I swear quite a bit on my own, and in my reviews, it'd be silly to indite myself.
I meant 'language' as in, actual language, and their grasp or lack of grasp on it as a whole. A two pronged 'flag' wouldn't necessarily mean that someone must go through and fix it -- it'd just let a reader know to approach the review with a grain of salt.
A verified review generally does not suffer language issues, precisely because it has been verified and had to pass through a short editorial process. Unverified reviews pass through umetered, at the moment, and therefor tend to suffer the most from quality issues, and are also only kept in check from poor facts by attentive readers who comment with correct facts.
"Jelly is super easy to clean and I can use it up my butt and in my vag!
" is only partly true, of course, and such a comment will bring our faithful readers up front and say, "Uhn, you're only partways correct...", however not always.
