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

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

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

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.

@Sagotharan Yes, sorry, I erased the content of the comment in the picture so it wouldn't distract from the illustration. –  jonsca Jan 28 '12 at 7:12
