I have noticed that I am asked to decide on the validity of flags against messages of mine, but then am prevented from actually voting on them. That seems nonsense.

So why am I asked this in the first place?

(I am adding a tag here, because it seems fitting, but feel free to change this should I have overlooked something.)

I agree with this. I noticed that you can vote for "Not sure" though, which I guess could be renamed to "Hide this vote-election". –  Johannes Schaub - litb Jun 30 '12 at 13:41
    
@Johannes: But why allow me to state my opinion, when I am only allowed to have one opinion? And, IIRC, voting "not sure" makes the flag needing more validators to get approved. So I can somewhat counter my own flag. Well, can the chat please register a "not sure" vote from me now automagically for any flag against me? And maybe, once the unicorns are at it, they should implement the same for the other few chat users as well? I mean, who would not want this? –  sbi Jul 2 '12 at 8:28
    
Apparently the flag system is not broken enough. –  thecoshman Jul 16 '13 at 10:07
