If, in the
/tools/flagged queue I come across a post that was flagged as
not a real question, and the question is utter, utter crap, which no edit short of re-writing the whole question would help, should I vote to close, or flag as VLQ?
As I understand it, voting to close will dismiss the flag as helpful. In that case, isn't there a good chance the question will just drift off the radar, and wallow with 1 close vote?
On the hand, voting to close will dismiss the flag as helpful, and reduce by one the list of things on the mods' queue. Disk space is cheap, but a mod's time isn't.
This question is similar, but it refers to questions which are salvageable with an edit. So what's the preferred approach to the situation above?
