How to report inappropriate content when forum moderator has no contact info?

The Contact Us page says that to discuss inappropriate content / moderation issues you should contact the moderator for the forum where the content was posted. Not all moderators seem to have private mooseages enabled and they don't post an email address either. What's the process to follow in that case?

You can call any post to the moderators' attention by using the Report button on the post.

you don't have to report it to the specific moderator of that forum. While that is preferred, I don't think any mod here would be upset if you contacted them for a forum they don't officially 'own'.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

I looked for such a button but couldn't see it. Then I realized: it's not present in the new look beta pages! When I switched back to the "normal view", there's a +1 button and a Report button that are not present in the new look.

Thank you!
