How to insert a link "alert to moderator" on Wordpress

I'm building a site with Wordpress. I have a forum on which users can add topics (posts) and then other users can make replies. I would like to add beside each reply a link to allow users to alert a moderator if something is wrong with this reply (for example if it has bad words, etc...).

Is this possible ?

Just if this is important, I implemented the forum by using bbPress, which is a plugin that uses the same Wordpress structure to add forum features to Wordpress.

Yes, but see:


You will be writing the entire functionality yourself.  bbPress does not have some of the most basic, standard functionality common to modern discussion forums.  I strongly recommend not using it.

Oh, what a pitty.

Does it exists a link where I can get some clues about how to implement it ?
Does it maybe exists a code to implement this on Wordpress post so I can try to adapt to bbpress ?
