    No, because plenty of answers get reported falsely (and MANY answers get reported but not removed, because they weren't reported by enough accounts).

    In the past, Trust Rating was impacted by having your post removed and not reinstated, as well as when a post you reported was (or wasn't) removed and whether or not it was reinstated.

    It would be nice but I doubt it will ever happen. They used to reduce points on those who abuse the edit category feather. They would lose their level 7 and go down to a 6. But I never heard of anyone going down 2 levels. But I have seen an account kept getting suspended. It was lucky to last more than a month before it was suspended again. That person kept on making up outrageous answers to questions here.

    When someone's question or answer is reported enough times by other users that computer programs remove the,question or answer from the YA display , the email account loses 10 points. If they appeal, and the appeal is denied, the account loses another 10 points. Accounts can be blocked from participating on YA for abusing the community guidelines and the terms of the terms of service contract. I saw one account go from level 7 to level 4 for vicious harassment on YA and the old suggestion board that was closed in 2014. I saw other accounts go down one or 2 levels.

    Etiquette, fair play and moral may not comes down to legal liability and damages. That includes violating copyrights and stealing intellectual property and violating licenses and patents, including libel and defamation.

    Since Verizon stopped sending out report notice and violation notice emails over 2 years ago, except very sporadically, it has become very difficult to appeal.
