Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

As far as I can tell, StackOverflow does nothing about this.

If there's a user doing this, flag one of their posts for moderator attention and it will be dealt with. – ChrisF Jul 19 '11 at 10:33
AFAIK there are no restrctions on embedding images (or videos, on some sites) in posts or chat. If needed, flag for Mod Attention as "Other" or "Not Welcome". It would be difficult to tell the difference between a legit image and a indecent one. If you're thinking about trying it, don't. And if you're worried about the picture in your profile...well, let's see. (hint, hint, guys) – tombull89 Jul 19 '11 at 10:38
This is what flags are for. No one can think of every inappropriate thing that a user could possibly do. Human depravity is like that. However, some genius did come up with a universal system to address all of these potential problems. Try it out and see how it works. ;-) – Cody Gray Jul 19 '11 at 10:52
@Cody Gray, how can I flag a profile image (not a gravatar). To see what I mean, click on the OP's profile. – tombull89 Jul 19 '11 at 10:55
Can you please flag a question or answer by said user for moderator attention and ask us to look at their profile? – Tim Post Jul 19 '11 at 10:55
@tombull89 - Said image has been removed. – Tim Post Jul 19 '11 at 10:57
@Moonbeam - please don't do that again, even to prove a point. – Tim Post Jul 19 '11 at 10:59
@Tim Post: Yes, and thanks. – tombull89 Jul 19 '11 at 10:59
@Tim - it needs removing from his Stack Overflow profile as well. – ChrisF Jul 19 '11 at 11:02
@Moonbeam - I've also removed it from your SO profile for you. – Tim Post Jul 19 '11 at 11:03
@Tim, Gotcha' ;] – Moonbeam Jul 19 '11 at 11:05
I'm glad this question is wildly unpopular. Makes me happy. :) – Moonbeam Jul 19 '11 at 15:03

From the Stack Exchange Network Content Policy:

Sexually Explicit Material. Accounts that use Stack Exchange to post sexually explicit or pornographic material, or links to it, will be suspended.

You can't flag a user, but you can (as ChrisF already mentioned) flag one of their posts and explain the issue. A moderator will then deal with it.

Stack Exchange can't possibly do a skin tone analysis on every image that people post in their profile. Much like the rest of the features on the site, we trust you to behave professionally and in accordance with the rules.

If you fail to do so, we'll let you know. That's why we're here.

If you find something inappropriate in a profile, flag one of the profile owner's questions or answers and let us know what's wrong. We'll handle it :)
