I've flagged a few posts in my time here as "offensive". When comments are flagged, the option is "rude or offensive", which is relatively straightforward. But some of the answers/questions I've flagged as offensive are often what I would consider extremely rude (and generally not an answer, in the case of answers) than necessarily offensive. (I realise that this is probably idiosyncratic, to an extent.)
Thus - is flagging extremely rude, off-topic posts as offensive appropriate (particularly when such posts aren't comments, where "rude" doesn't seem to be stated in the reasons for flagging)?
