In one of the SE sites I frequent, we've now had two racially oriented questions asked. The user is very smart about how he words them, yet his phrasing indicates he (may be) racist.

If I find a comment, question, or answer offensive, or hate speech, I can flag them. How would we 'flag' a user?


On the SE sites I've been on the procedure is to flag a post of the user with a custom flag and explain clearly what the problem is, and the moderators can take it from there.


An effective means is to flag the user's contributions (answers, comments etc), using the 'Other' options for posts or comments when flagged - objectively state what the issue is clearly based on what the user has posted. If it has happened before, include this information in your comment to the moderators.
