I've seen several people post an answer in a question that states "question reported" or "I reported it". I don't know if proclaiming how they reported the question got them "in trouble or not". You are correct that we can't solicit people or get them to report the same questions too. I think making it public knowledge that you reported a question would IN DIRECTLY cause others to report it as well. That is why I NEVER say anything when I report a question, profile, etc. Not only that, but you don't know how the person on the other end will respond. Letting them know you reported them could lead to cyber bullying or stalking. Of course if they started this THEY would be in the wrong; however I wouldn't want to do something that COULD send them over the moon. I don't know them, or how they will react, so I just use caution by NEVER telling them.
