A user's posts to a Q&A thread are trolling and baiting.

This post implies that not being white is a negative trait for a scientist (trolling against people of color and baiting a reaction) and also uses Down Syndrome as a pejorative (trolling against neurodivergence and baiting a reaction) against (emphases added).

This post makes a "go to the kitchen" bait (emphasis added)
National Capitalist United States wrote:1) I don't want your red Koolaid
2) Well have fun turning your nation into Venezuela 2.0.

Seriously, resign and go back to the kitchen.

Oh is that too far? Sorry.

My nation is just supposed racist and sexist. I don't have these views in real life.

I appreciate hearing you don't advocate those views.

That being said, I would point out that you did not indicate your posts as being in-character in any discernible way (there is no indication of a character speaking, rather than the user). And behavior being in-character does not automatically justify it. I did not include your initial question in the report, as I wanted to try to interpret that initial question in good faith as much as I could. However, you continued to post in the thread with more un-charactered baiting statements (that is to say, not discernibly marked as in-character). That is what across as trolls and baits.
