I check other under it needs ♦ moderator attention. Then I can't change it to it is spam and submit the form. It might require going back and forth between it needs ♦ moderator attention and it is spam to reproduce.

(hmmmm.... I suspect trying to repro this here might be a bad idea... I should really move to a dev sandbox... but it is so tempting....) – Marc Gravell Apr 20 '12 at 15:53
Also works if you select very low quality. You can then click any of the other upper level options to reset the moderator attention radio. – Oded Apr 20 '12 at 15:54
can you describe what you do see, or what happens? it seems to work fine for me ... also, what browser are you using? – Marc Gravell Apr 20 '12 at 15:56
@MarcGravell: Hit flag, click "Other", click spam, click "it needs mod attention" again ("other" should still be enabled magically) then click spam -> the "flag question" is still disabled – Matt Apr 20 '12 at 15:58

Repro on iPad (Terra). I'm getting stranger behavior here. Other>spam>other. The moment I click "spam" after this, the flag button enables itself for a split second and then disables itself. Code reuse? – Manishearth Apr 20 '12 at 16:01
I get different behaviour depending on clicking buttons vs text; will investigate – Marc Gravell Apr 20 '12 at 16:11
This is only partially true for me. If you click on the actual radio button or "other" text, then try to click on "it is spam" it doesn't re-enable the button. If you click inside the textarea and let it auto-select "other" then click "it is spam" it does get re-enabled. – animuson Apr 20 '12 at 18:17
No repro for me here... Firefox 11. – Robert Harvey Apr 20 '12 at 19:37
