A lot of the reviews are NOT going to get you whistle points because a lot are from 2006 and below! DO NOT MARK ANY REVIEWS AS ABUSIVE UDNER 2007 OR YOU WILL GET A GARBAGE WHISTLE.
Hope this clears things up.
Oh and very review you mark as abusive, and it isnt, will lose you 5 whistle points. So only mark it as abusive if you REALLY KNOW it is.
That clears nothing up because you have no idea what you're talking about. An abusive review is an abusive review, it's not exempt just because someone wrote it two years ago (unless it's on B, but that's to maintain the historical integrity of the most iconic spam flash). That being said, chances are, a two year old review is never going to be read by anyone other than someone hunting for flags to boost their stats. We'd much prefer if you focused on more recent reviews.
As for marking non-abusive reviews you're most likely not going to lose points if it gets cleared. If I can, in any way, no matter how slight the reasoning, see how someone might think a review is abusive I'll clear the flags without penalizing them. Getting docked for your flags only happens when a review is so perfect that I can't think of any reason why someone would want to flag it. That also being said, flagging reviews that are just going to get cleared without penalty won't hurt you, but it increases the time it takes us mods to get to and delete abusive reviews.
