This is a suggestion to add a Red Flag for 'Abusive Posts'
Why? As an example here

Man, is it just me or does it seem like every for sale ad getting beat up by people with no feedback and hardly any (if any) posts here lately?
If decisive action isn't taken to stop it, this activity will begin to damage the FM community. And it isn't just B&S, there are irrational posts in other areas as well.
"Report This Post" is fine for personal attacks, policy violations, etc but the number of bizarre, disrespectful posts by non-rated individuals is clearly increasing: and it's impossible for Fred Miranda to monitor all the Boards and activities of a 250,000+ member online community on an individual complaint basis.
So here's a suggestion: A Red Flag button to report improper posts by members with less than 5+ feedback AND also report feedback abuse. (I'm seeing feedback boosting like the old days on eBay).
Wiser minds than mine may see a better remedy but perhaps a warning and 30 day freeze for the first offense, then 90 days, followed by "Three strikes you're out."
I'm not suggesting a limit on interaction, just respectfully recommending the need to stop 'drive by' posting abuse before it becomes a major problem.
