Is there a better way to say "Report This Photo" or "Report This Message" or "Report File"? #suggestion

As you know, group members can click "Report This Message" or "Report This Photo" or "Report File".  That sends a message to the Moderators or to Groups.io, telling them that there might be something inappropriate about the photo, message, or file.

I wonder if there is a better way to say "Report"?  The word "Report" bothers me, so I imagine it's confusing for others too.

Maybe "Mark as Objectionable"?  ("Mark this [...] as Objectionable")

Some people hit the button by accident, not knowing what it means.

Also consider non-English-speaking users.  When translated (via an online translator) from English into German or Russian or whatever, I wonder if their equivalent of "Report"  has close to the same meaning?

This is just a question, maybe without an answer.

I can only assume that you don't
use other social networks a lot,
nor read the comment sections of
newspapers and other midia services
that publish public messages from
their readers, because absolutely
ALL services that I know of use
this exact expression "Report".

Why change something that is
"universal" on the internet?
It would be the same as wanting
to change well established terms
like "Like" or "Join" or "Login"...
