I have recently started helping the SO community by editing the posts (almost 200 edits till now) and raising quite a number of helpful flags.
I came across an obvious need of Oh-please-provide-more-options-for-migrating-offtopic-questions, a common one. I saw Jeff's answer on this where he suggested that we should "flag them for moderator attention instead".
The flag was declined with following justification:
declined - When a question is old and answered, its better to ask on the destination site's meta if they want it. If so, their mods can ask us to migrate.
Isn't this a lengthy and a much time consuming process of migrating questions? This process definitely discourages users (at least me) to care for such category of flagging. Can't diamond moderators directly or by voting migrate such questions to other sites?
