 Initially implemented in r7605, the report topic link is a bit close to
 the subscribe link, and easy to accidentally click, there's also a few
 other shortcomings, relating to those who manually add the `modlook` tag,
 and uncertainty around why a topic has been reported at times.

 The attached patch aims to resolve this by detecting when the `modlook`
 tag is manually added to a topic.

 It also converts the current link solution to a form, with a reason field
 (that is required), this makes it harder to accidentally report a topic,
 and also makes users have to say specifically why they choose to report a

 The most common reasons are available as simple selections, but I've opted
 to allow an option named `Other` where the user can provide the input them
 selves, this should cover any missed scenarios, and not hinder the
 reporting of a topic if a reason doesn't "feel right" for the one that
 wants ot report it.
