A moderator encouraged us to bring such issues to meta, so I'm writing this question.
A What Should I do? question was asked and I voted to close it. Then the following happened:
- A user wrote an answer
- The same user cast the last VTC
- The answer received a DV and the user deleted it
- The user copy-pasted their answer into a comment underneath the question
Update: The comment is gone now.
We are not supposed to write answers in comments, so when I noticed the comment, I flagged it as no longer needed, but my flag was declined.
Why was my flag declined?
I hope for feedback so that I don't flag comments that are considered okay by moderators in the future. This causes just unnecessary work for everyone involved.
