Is there a feature where users can report a potentially bad post (e.g. spam or abuse) so the moderators/admin can take care of it?

There's no "automated" way to do this. But it wouldn't be hard to modify the templates to have a mailto: link with the post URL or direct it to a form that would do this.

Templates are basically HTML with some Freemarker script (that is readable even if you don't know Freemarker). If you haven't found it, the best place might be the post_show_action_buttons_inc.htm file which displays the subject line, etc.

The quickest way is to do a mailto: link on the page. Something like:



When clicked the user should have an e-mail message opened up in his PC with the Subject line being a URL to the post in question.

Alternatively, you could use something like JFormMail with is a Servlet that takes the output of a form and turns it into an e-mail. That way you could have the link point to a form that specified the specific info you want.
