In any case, the poster in question is now banned.

I thought the purpose of reporting offensive posts was to call the moderators' attention to them.

In this case, I first became aware of the post because the Mod himself quoted it, noting in passing that others had already reported it, and declining to sanction the poster in any way whatsoever.

In that situation, what purpose would have been served by my reporting the post?
