Please reinstate or give alternative to right click report

Currently right click reporting is gone from the classic beta. This is obviously Bad News for anyone who doesn’t want obnoxious jerks polluting the public chats.

If right click reporting is indeed gone, please give an alternative to remove toxic players from public chats. We definitely don’t want the culture seen in private servers to end up in classic, filled with racist/homophobic/otherwise bigoted nonsense, “jokes”, and “discourse”.

Remember that if you expect people to deal with aggressive people by either 1) being aggressive in return, or B) leaving, only aggressive people will be left. A passive method that can’t be traced (to avoid retaliation) is needed.

Valid concerns have been brought up regarding the current implementation of right click report (typically griefing in BGs and the like). They can be fixed, or a different system without those problems can be implemented.

Thank you.

I can confirm that the report function was inadvertently removed from the beta, and will definitely be back when WoW Classic goes live.
