Long story short, out of the blue there appeared a user that seems determined in their attempts on derailing discussions I start on SE.
At first they were attempting to start comment wars and being unfriendly, I flagged everything they posted and most of it was removed.
Now they changed strategies, they just go there and try to call my attention or bring up something totally irrelevant to the context, always tagging me.
They appear to have no such interests related to other users.
As an aside note, they seem eager eager to bring up stuff like (real examples from them here),
"I put a .380 bullet through two rapists' necks"
"menstrual blood has sometimes been referred to as unclean" (no one asked about menstrual blood)
"you seem to condone rape"
and other stuff that seems somehow related with women's struggles. Rape, misoginy, menstrual blood and other stuff I just can't link to the questions they're posted on. To me it seems clear the only intent is goading me.
Also bear in mind that I don't know who this person is or why they picked me. I was just flagging all of their comments and also began ignoring them. As most of the earlier comments got removed, they now changed strategies and began to tag me on seemingly on-topic comments. Then they sidetrack and tag me, while bringing up off-topic, often nonsensical or out of context comments..
To make things worse, the user has 15k+ reputation and idk if that's the reason, but mods seem not to agree the person has been determined to annoy me and often find a justification for not removing what they've been posting around. If I ignore them they'll just post 2/3 comments in a row, tagging me in them and ignoring everyone else in the comments.
The result is that they seem to have at least started on topic, so when I flag their off-topic comments, the mods don't remove them.
That includes an answer to a question I asked recently.
It was legitimate, it got many answers and upvotes, and they went there and posted an "answer" where they didn't respond to anything I asked and just overall tried to drag me into a fight, questioning the question, asking why I posted it, also challenged the example I gave, somehow telling I was wrong and overall trying to get a reaction from me. I didn't comment or answer anything, since all of their deliberations were completely off-topic and had an undertone of anger or flaming, with no apparent reason.
I flagged it as "not an answer", the mods declined to remove it on the basis that it was "okay to challenge a question's premise".
If it was an isolated case I'd agree, but seeing I reported like, 20+ comments from that person, most of them removed for violating the code of conduct, some being downright abusive, in that case I think mods should take action.
To be honest with the mods, I do think most of the rejected flags had a good justification on the outside, namely, the content seems okay. But considering the other activity from the same user, I think it is clear for the mods too that the intent of the comments is to cause annoyance.
I have made several nice contributions to stack SE but I seriously think SE is really lacking a block button or some other way of getting rid of these annoyances, and in case there's no solution to the problem, I'll just stop contributing. I usually just ignore them, but one just has so much patience...
