I just wanted to report a post, but when I click the "Send Report" button I get a Firehost page that says: "This page has been blocked by FireHost Website Protection. Please email block.requests@firehost.com and provide the following information such that we may investigate and resolve this blocked action."

Session ID: 0

So I sent an email with that information to the specified address, then I composed this post.

BTW, this is the post I wanted to report: http://laserpointerforums.com/f40/808nm-what-s-color-80259.html#post1153220

The OP has clearly to learn a lot (well, he has to learn everything), and giving false information to clueless n00bs can end in a disaster. I can see Olsqueak believing that post, bringing a high power IR laser to a rave party, going "Wanna see a beam that absorbs light and glows black like a shadow?" and blinding 100+ people.
Or, if he recognizes that statement as not true, he might think "that was a joke, so the whole 'wear protective goggles or you'll go blind' affair must be a joke too" and end up blinding himself and/or others.

It's clearly a joke, and is easily seen as such... the OP is also answered repeatedly in the same thread by others.

About goggles... if he still didn't get the message, than everyone is in trouble. Unfortunately there are stupid people, and not all can be, are capable of, or are willing to learn.

For the firehost error, try to log out, clear browser cache, close browser, reopen browser, and see if it's still happening.

It is obviously a jab at humor....
No one would believe that to be true..
You are reading too much into your assumptions...
I personally see no need to Report that Post.

As EUD pointed out.. it would be better to contact
the poster and ask him to add a few Smilies to make
it clearer that it was a Joke...

BTW... Maybe FireHost also thought it wasn't worth
reporting....:whistle:
