This is true and I think the report button does get used, well it used to be.
 
This way you are putting trust to the very users that are generating the content on the forum.
 
I think the trust is there but when this rule came into effect there was a lot of hate filled people against muslims and islam, and some muslims themselves were not of best behaviour either.  many even resigned up after being banned. There were a lot of complaints. Checking posts before they got posted was a way of controlling the situation.
 
The checking posts is for newbies for x amount of post anyway.
 
Trust me the board was very active, it seems it is not so at the moment.

Hi admin, maybe you can give thought about relaxing the checking posts, give it ago, trial period and see how things go, you can always revert back if need be Wink
