Publicise flag counts on closed questions
Currently, when a moderator follows up on community flags and acts upon a question, the close message will look something like this:
closed as not constructive by Kev♦ Sep 11 '11 at 11:21
Which frequently leads to angry complaints about unilateral action. How can the mod override the community's will like that! If not for the mod's decision, my question would have survived! etc. etc.
However, on Meta, it is often mentioned that when casting an unilateral close vote, mods usually follow up on community flags from users who don't have the reputation to vote to close yet.
If this is the case, why not show the flaggers' names as well to make it clear it wasn't necessarily an actively unilateral decision on a mod's behalf? After all, in this specific scenario (users flag with a specific close reason), it doesn't seem like flagging details need to be kept a secret.
