I just got back from being "karma banned" for five days because your karma system, which was a bad idea from the word go, goofed up. I flagged a bunch of spam posts in Games Discussion, they were making up about half the front page that morning, and I went to work. When I got back home, action had been taken on all of them, but the karma from flagging them was still on me.
I was unable to do anything but send PM's for the last five days, and had to get any info at all on what was going on through a volunteer moderator because their was no thread on it here and admin don't read private messages. (apparently) You want to ban the people doing something wrong, not the people trying to alert your incredibly sparse and far too concentrated mod team to the wrong doing.
If I sound frustrated, it's because I am. This has been an abysmally bad customer experience, and I'd like a public apology for it.
Just give us a traditional straight forward way to quickly and simply send mod alerts from an individual post, please.
