- What is a disputed flag? 1 answer
I've read multiple questions that have been posted over the past several months regarding disputed flags, but I don't think I understand the goal of this behavior.
Here a a question that I flagged. The question was closed. My flag is disputed.
It appears to me that in this particular case, my flag was indicating that the question was of low quality, but the question was closed for not being a real question. It seems that we want to encourage users to flag questions that are of irreparably low quality or are even deemed not a real question.
I'm not questioning the wisdom of the SO collective, I'm just trying to understand.
