I think it would be a handy feature to show the user the offending post he is about to report under the 'Report a bad post' text area. The purpose here would be to let the user know which post exactly he is trying to report [for posts close to each other, many make a mistake of reporting something which they don't want to] and also provide easy means to quote a piece of text in the post as the 'Flag bad post' reason.

What do the other members think about this?

>many make a mistake of reporting something which they don't want to
I haven't seen a statistically significant number of reports like this. The correct reports are the majority, followed by a small number of reports where the reporter confused the "Report Bad Post" link with the "Reply" button.

>also provide easy means to quote a piece of text in the post
That's a good idea, though it's generally easy to take the report comment and find what the reporter is talking about.

I'm not sure the benefit outweighs the implementation effort. Dani would be doing the coding for it though.

Of course, this is all subject to the implementation effort, the other priorities Dani has at present etc. :-)

I just thought I would mention this since the Daniweb we see now is a result of many such continuous improvements over a period of time and if many people see this as a required improvement, it might just get implemented.
