This question already has an answer here:
Just wondering if someone could clarify the reason as to why my flag was declined for an answer on this question (I have added the link to the answer which has been deleted but anyone with moderator permissions on SO should be able to see the it).
I suspect that someone may have flagged the answer as spam in addition to my 'not an answer' flag as the answer was just randomly formatted text with a random comment from the person who submitted the answer under it also.
Is this the case (in which case the comment is misleading) or was there an error on my part here? :S
