Team Admin, I have a question. I have in the past reported posts. On some of these occasions, I have gotten a reply from one of the admin team acknowledging my report and telling me that it is being looked into. Asking around, I find that this has happened to others also. Does this mean how I interpret it, and reports are not made anonymously?

Reports are not anonymous to the admins, but they're anonymous to everyone else. So, whilst they know who made the report (for good reason, because otherwise there would be nothing to prevent spurious reports and report-spamming), the person who was reported does not.
