The "Debate House Prices" forum was closed with a request to "Please do not post content intended for this board elsewhere in the forum" but some users are blatantly disregarding this by starting threads on deliberately contentious issues.
The nearest "Report post" option would appear to be "Technical disruption" as the thread is designed to disrupt the site with users debating/arguing but is there a better way to nip these threads in the bud; would it be better/possible to simply have a "Breaks Forum Rules" report option?
Respect to 3 of the greatest actors of all time; amazing people who are totally believable as the characters they play & almost single-handedly make the shows they starred in:

Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones
Daniel J. Travanti as Frank Furillo in Hill Street Blues
Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison in Homeland

    From the Forum rules:

    If you see a post or receive a private message that you believe breaches the Forum rules, it can be reported by clicking on the dedicated button on the post, via the blue link at the top of the Forum, or by email to [email protected].

    To help us review your report, we ask that you:

    • Include link/s to each post you are reporting and, if it's a username, a link to the user’s profile. It really helps us if you check that links are working before hitting send too.

    • A clear explanation of why you are reporting it and the rule it breaks. For example, is it inappropriate, offensive or unfriendly?

    You will receive an automated response confirming receipt of your report. If you don't, please resend it. Your report will be reviewed, and we may ask you for further information. We will then take the relevant action, in line with our rules, or as we deem appropriate to the situation. Once you've reported an issue, please let us deal with it and don't comment or respond about it on the Forum.

    Our team works 9-5, Monday-Friday (excluding bank holidays) and we aim to manage all reports as quickly as possible. However, some require investigation and can take several days. With this in mind, please don't chase us as it simply adds to the workload and delays everything further.

    I’m a Senior Forum Ambassador and I support the Forum Team on the Competition Time, Site Feedback and Marriage, Relationships and Families boards. If you need any help on these boards, do let me know. Please note that Ambassadors are not moderators. Any posts you spot in breach of the Forum Rules should be reported via the report button, or by emailing [email protected] All views are my own and not the official line of Money Saving Expert.

    Please don't let the tick boxes put you off reporting something - please choose the closest reason in the list, even if it's not a perfect fit. 

    We can usually figure out why something has been reported.

    If it's less obvious, you can always reply to the email acknowledgement of your report to add further detail.

    Sometimes if we're really puzzled about why someone has hit 'report' we'll reply and ask for a bit more context to understand the issue.

    Likewise, if there's more than one reason for reporting a post, you don't need to make two reports. 

    We REALLY appreciate everyone who takes the time to report problematic posts - thank you for playing your part in keeping the community safe and supportive for everyone.
