I have reported a few people for abuse in mylot. I am not sure I remember all of the details, but I know in at least one case the person was making very rude racist remarks that would have offended anyone. Sometimes I alert mylot to the fact that someone is creating one discussion after another and there is no actual basis to the post. For example if they made a new discussion and the only thing on the post was the word "paper", or "trust". Sometimes people start discussions in another language which is also against guidelines. I am not sure what happens, but I hope that the discussions are removed and the people are made aware of their mistakes. Sure, there are people who make honest mistakes, and then there are just scammers.

Yes, I have reported a person but I don't think one could call it abuse. Well, I suppose the person was abusing myLot rules. The person copied and pasted one of my discussions word for word and even copied the rest of the page...idiot. A few of my friends here on myLot brought it to my attention and I reported it to myLot. The result was that the person who copied and pasted my discussion was banned by myLot and had their account closed. I don't think that kind of thing happens anymore here on myLot or if it does, I haven't heard about it.
