Default One Problem with moving threads around

ok so I'm reading this thread in "Hd-DVD Bargains" forum and I notice some smackdown comments. So I dutifully report them because I mean HDD does have a separate forum for this sort of thing. And so I report a few and then I realize based on a comment in the thread that the thread has been MOVED to HD-DVD Bargains apparently. Now I feel like a fool of course, because obviously the comments I reported had been ok as the thread had been in smackdown. The mods need to be aware of this when they move a thread out of smackdown and include a comment to this effect or delete smackdown comments before moving thread imo. This is really embarrassing to be reporting people wrongly. How can we prevent this in the future?

Everything turns into a Smackdown, really, regardless of where it starts and where it ends up.

My point is that if you try to report every instance of smackdown comments in a thread outside those forums, you'll end up flooding the moderators' inboxes.

Thanks for pointing this out Arkadin, we'll look at ways to improve this moving forward.
