Why is it that when I report something offensive, it rarely ever gets taken off?

but when I say something within the guidelines, it gets removed immediately? for example: a girl calls me the B word, I report it - doesn't get removed.
I call them a child - gets removed right away.
are the moderators just out to get me? it doesn't make sense. please explain? mods - maybe send me an email explaining it to me?

The mods prolly have 100's upon 100's if not 1000's of reports coming in and if they work in shifts it would take awhile to work their way thru them all, and sometimes things accidentally can fall thru the cracks and it doesn't mean anyone is being deliberately snubbed. I reported some pervy comments on a young girl and it got immediately removed but I also reported a nudity (breasts) avatar and it didn't get taken off even a week after, it might have by now this was months ago.

this doesn't just happen "sometimes". it happens very often.

In general if you have reported something and it's been more than a couple hours, and you feel that it might have been missed, you can contact Customer Support and have them look into it. Sometimes when it's busy, we can inadvertently click a wrong button, so if you let them know they can review it for you.

I usually report things right away, and instead, my comments get removed. I don't think it's just a glitch, it happens all the time :/
