It's occurred to me that there is a specific user here that has a bad habit of making directly aggressively rude comments implying or directly stating that people are stupid or ignorant when they disagree with him. I started flagging these but the message is something like '10 more to go'. Does it make sense to require that many users to flag a comment in order to trigger action? It doesn't seem like the community is active enough in flagging things for that to be an effective standard. Also, is there anyone looking at the overall level of flags for a user?
I'm not perfect and everyone has bad days but this is behavior that has been repeated over years and continues to this day. I'm guessing that a lot of people are hardened to such things especially when they come from a bit of a crank but is that really something we should be tolerating?
