Flag, Delete, Flag

I have had a post flagged yesterday for being a bit unfriendly (for those who didn’t get the joke or don’t know what the word “sarcastic” in the post means, the person I was replying to understood). After the flag I found it best to delete it because it wasn’t worth editing, but for some reason overnight it was flagged again. You can’t even see a deleted post so why was it flagged? If the site allows this, a post can repeatedly flagged for the life of the site even if it’s deleted. :frowning:


This is a borderline site bug topic

Indeed it is, moving to Site Bugs.

Well it feels more like bad policy not a bug, because when you delete it says “will be removed in 24 hours unless flagged” which means flagging a deleted post is part of the way the policy of flagging works.


Like this?

Edit: See below…

(post withdrawn by author, will be automatically deleted in 24 hours unless flagged)

Has it been determined if anything should be done about this?

And, why is my post still here?

It’s annoying me…

I’m gonna flag it!
