Some answers are plain wrong, or even harmful. Usually these get spotted pretty quickly and either fixed or deleted by the poster, on the basis of comments/votes.
Sometimes though these slip under the radar - the OP ignores the downvotes/comments, or nobody even picks up on it the first time around.
I've always assumed that VLQ flags in the 10K queue for answers that are technically flawed, but otherwise OK were effectively "request for review by somebody knowledgeable in this area". It seems though that this is not the intended use of VLQ flags.
How should answers like this be handled instead if VLQ is not appropriate? Is there a mechanism for requesting further review? Raising them in chat is sometimes an option, but not always appropriate.
The useful actions that might happen as a result of increased visibility:
- Edits by domain experts
- Downvotes to hide the poor answer
- Less flawed answers by experts
- Delete votes by 20K users
Would a "technical issue flag" that pushes to a tab in /review help?
