Allow the reporting of inappropriate petitions

I believe in freedom of speech, as most people do. I do not, however, believe that freedom of speech should absolve the speaker of the consequences of the impact of their words.

There are petitions on which are racist, sexist and discriminatory in nature and I feel that for these petitions it is important to be able to report that a petition is not acceptable.

A simple report button beside a petition would make it possible for participants to raise concerns about specific petitions to be reviewed, and possibly removed, by staff if necessary.
