    Thank you so much! I had suggested a “report bad comment” button, but this serves the same purpose!

    I really, really appreciate this!

    An all around fantastic idea, except…

    What should I say if I actually need a giraffe?

      “Bring unto me a most excellent giraffe, lowly peasant!” sounds pretty good to me.

    Okay, you win +3 internets!

    1. just the idea of a moderation trigger is brilliant
    2. who doesn’t love giraffes? (even the word giraffe is delightful!)
    3. use of the word ‘vexatiously’ (Miss Bennet would totes approve!)

    do we only giraffe for blatantly phobic behavior, or we can ask for a giraffe on annoying trolling-type comments?

    And, can we ask for a giraffe to moderate a genuine conversation where people are getting angry/hurt?

    I don’t want to call wolf (with a giraffe).

      it is definitely not a cue for a cliquish pile-on of in-jokes about giraffes

      Thank you. Because none of this is funny, especially for people who belong to whatever group of people is being attacked.

    I like the giraffe, I like the Fluffinator, and I like the proposed solution.

    That giraffe looks like a flower.

      Like the kind of flower it would eat.

        –If giraffes ate flowers. Actually, flowers that look like giraffe heads also look poisonous.
