I'm translating a confirmation email to english. This email is sent to the website's user when he flags a content as inappropriate or offensive.

Something like:

We have received your (report / complaint) at our website.

So, what word is the most suitable in this case? Or is there yet another alternative?


Go with "report". "Complaint" would apply if it were only a confirmation about offensive things, but to make it broad enough to cover both inappropriate (perhaps off-topic, but not scandalous) and offensive, use the more neutral "report".
