How to flag an inappropriate user?

I know how to flag a comment as 'not nice' or 'inappropriate' and an Instructable as 'inappropriate' or 'spam' ... but how does one flag a user?

I've seen a few around that are rude, offensive, racist, sexist, and some times violent. Is there any way to flag a user, and not just his/her individual comments or Instructables?

can someone please tell me if there is a way to keep someone on here from commenting to me or sending me messages...block them...anyone, please?
f you mean Private Messages, then there is a "block user" button to the top-right of any message.

If you mean commenting on your Orangeboard, forum topics or Instructables, then "no". If, though, you find their comments offensive, then you can consider using the "flag" button.

If they are just being indefinably "annoying", though, then refer to this Instructable or this group.

not to mention the inherent irony in the fact that grapes are poisonous to dogs and can kill them if they eat them

unless you're trying to dress your dog up in a costume that is scary to other dogs
Hmm, I did not know that, can you prove this? I can't think of anything in a grape that a dog can't eat.
I think it's kind of like the thing where your not meant to give cats cows milk due to the lactose in it however our cats have drank it since they were kittens and are fine, They have some every night after their dindins =D<br />
actually it's nothing similar....i'll have to look up exactly what chemical causes it as i'm not sure...but

with cats and cow milk...cats are lactose if you give them cows milk it will make them fart...not kill them

something in grapes (i suspect it's probably one of the chemicals that also makes grapes ferment so well) causes a dog's (or cat's) kidneys to fail...which will kill them (or at least can if you don't treat it)
