Recently, I found the http://facebook.stackoverflow.com part of Stack Overflow. I have found that many of the questions asked here are off topic or otherwise not suitable for Stack Overflow.
When I have found these questions, I have flagged them, and the flags have been marked helpful. Sometimes though, when I flag obviously off topic or vague questions, even though the flag is marked as helpful, no action is taken, and the post remains open.
I want to be a help by flagging bad questions, but I feel that my effort on some of these posts is pointless, because the flag seems to be ignored.
Should I not be flagging these posts, or is there something else I am missing?
