Within the comments of Running Time of a d-ary heap?, there is a fairly strong indication that at least one user flagged the question as being better suited to another forum. I disagreed, and advocated in support of leaving the question where it was, but I also considered flagging the question myself, but not to recommend it being moved. Instead, I wanted to advocate directly with the moderators in support of the position I made in the comments. However, I was not sure the flag system was really intended to serve that purpose. So my question:
Is advocating that no moderator action be taken in response to another user's flag (when it seems likely such a flag has been raised) an appropriate use of the flag system?
