Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In response to the effect this question is referring, I am proposing one of two possible scenarios:

  1. Disallow flags on chat messages older than X hours, or

  2. Remove old flagged posts from the transcript, but no suspension occurs (as in the aforementioned question).

If only we weren't having these issues only in the C++ room... – balpha Sep 7 '11 at 13:51
It's not just a C++ room problem....... Haters gonna hate. – Brian Sep 7 '11 at 13:57
I remember when we were annoyed by the Android and PHP rooms generating too many flags as well. We didn't get very vocal at the time, because we were not aware of all the nooks and crannies of the system, and well, it wasn't with us. Now that it hit us, we got vocal (whiny?). – R.

@balpha: What Martinho says. This is not a C++ room problem (this was triggered by flags happening in other rooms, IIRC). We might be louder about it than other rooms, but that's just because we care more. :) – sbi Sep 7 '11 at 14:27
