There is not enough space to write this in a flag, nor the capacity to include screenshots. I am going to block out instances of the user's name in order to keep him or her anonymous.
I believe something should be done about this user's repetitive misconduct. I have successfully made multiple flags against this person that were marked as "helpful", for example:
There was another flag where the user told a brand new user that the way he was thinking about the problem was "horrible", and I was told that my rude/abusive flag was so trivial that I should have edited the question immediately:
Considering these three flags, I'm sure other users also raised helpful flags against this user.
A first time brand new user was met with unwelcoming comments by this user, and in fact wrote "He was so rude and arrogant man absolutely insulting what a coward deleting his comments no backbone to stick to his convictions."
Now I've raised a flag because he wrote "How on earth would that be..."
which is in violation of at least one part of the code of conduct as far as I see:
"no subtle put-downs"
"How on Earth..." is a euphemism for the far more common "how the hell...". I do not like seeing this phrase and it makes me extremely uncomfortable.
The same flagged comment contains another subtle put-down:
which implies that the answer was not factual. Is there not a more polite way of discussing possible improvements to an answer than using these subtle put-downs?
I have flagged the user's comment, and at least one moderator has already seen the flag, and nothing has been done about this repetitive bad conduct which is in violation of the Code of Conduct.
I wonder if the community believes that some attempt should be made to mitigate the rudeness in this person's comments?
