I saw a comment that contained offensive words (e.g., fu**er).

How do I report that? Is this acceptable behavior on Stack Overflow?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

When you have a question about a specific question/answer/comment then you would normally post a link to the item in question, this helps illustrate your question and can get it dealt with very quickly. – slugster Jan 28 '12 at 5:35
Are you Willing to see the Post Comment. Can I post The link here?. – Sagotharan Jan 28 '12 at 5:41
up vote 5 down vote accepted

Hover over the area next to the comment (where you would normally vote it up), and there is a flag icon to notify a moderator about it.

As to whether that is acceptable, I would say no, it's offensive language. More so if it's directed at someone in particular. People may have differing opinions on certain words, it's subjective.

Also, a link (or a screenshot) might help so others can check it out. Right now, it's hearsay.
