A: What, if anything should one do if a user's "about me" profile section contains extremely inflammatory terms (racist, etc.)

Jeff AtwoodOh, this user, whose name rhymes with "bosshog", definitely knows better. Our general approach has been to take a hands-off approach to the user page -- it's for you to place whatever you want there, within reason. Obviously racism, hate speech, any sort of overt evil will not be tolerated. But ...

What offensive word rhymes with bosshog?
The closest sounding word I can think of is a-hole, in uncensored form, but the first syllable of that compound does not rhyme with bog.

@Robusto Thanks for sharing the article; I bookmarked it, but I will never use literally to mean figuratively. And someone here hates that useage of hopefully; I can't remember who.
 
@Robusto I disagree with most of that, but w'evs!
@Gigili OK, what about?
I'd rather not talk about the past.
 
@Cerberus I held out for a long time on the singular they, but I caved; I don't care about it sometimes.
 
@KannE Hold on just a little bit longer!
Just until it disappears.

@Cerberus Generally, I cave on FB and the like, where people don't know or care that the -body and -one pronouns are singular. I use them a lot.
