Q&A for work
Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search.
An asker on a question I am working on posted some code that contains their site password if you look deeply at it. How can I alert the user to take this down without posting it publicly on the question, thus calling even more attention to it?
'Flag' the post for moderator attention and explain the problem. They can remove the password and redact the edit history.
