How does one alert?

During my 15 years here, I have alerted maybe 10 times. One of them at someone who responded to a post of mine F**ck You. I don't remember what it was about. Yes, it was hidden.

But now, when one clicks on the alert abuse, a large screens opens, one can select the reason and then, what? All I see are several cancels buttons. Hitting Enter, or Return does not do anything.

Can anyone post examples?

2. After you select a rule, you should get a button to confirm the alert.

"I believe this post breaks this rule" or similar wording.

3. After you click the alert link, you need to click the rule that the post violates.

The full explanation of the rule will appear, along with a button that says "I believe the post violates this rule". That will submit the alert.

6. The full explanatin did not appear, only the small area

Still, I manage to screenshot an image



So there is a cancel on the corner - did not capture it - and a close near the small area.

What do I do next? Where is the enter button?

9. The button is right there to the left of "Close" in your screenshot.

Big gray button: I believe the post breaks this rule.
