I know you can flag comments on flash and audio, but what about the author's response? Like instead of an author saying "thanks for watching" or something, they just say "SUCK A DICK!". What can I do about it?

there's no option available to flag author comments. Authors are allowed to say whatever they want in response to your reviews because, in the end, it's their own work. You can choose not to watch their work, or to vote lower on his submission if you are annoyed by how he responds to reviews.

Flagging reviews is primarily to protect authors from abuse. And, since review moderators don't have the tools to delete only an author's response, it would be counter productive to delete legitimate reviews just because the author left a mean comment on it. And, it could open up room for authors to manipulate the average review score of his flash by leaving nasty comments to low scoring reviews.

You don't have to inform other about them, since the authors have the last word anyway. :)

How could that work?

"You have been banned from responding to the reviews of your submissions for the next 30 days." lol

sadly they can't since if they ban em from respond a review they could not give them his point of view or a message to community and this has been posted before but never worked the idea :(
