You could hit the RTM. The mods will review and either adress it or if the majority feel its not actionable, we usually send a PM to the reporting person, advising them of such. You could PM one of the mods, saying something like, "Hey can you check out this post. Seems like rude, but I'm not really sure, so rather than hit the RTM...." Just a side note. The RTM feature has been abused in the past and at times, it still is. Like Bob said, its primary function is for rule violations. Could you hit it in the scenario you gave above? Sure, but of course, IMO, it'd be good to be pretty close to certain that it is a violation. Thread derailment....valid reason to RTM. Constantly being on the fence tossing little jabs. Yeah, thats something thats valid, as it happens all the time.
