I thought one could only flag a post once, and that after that it should display:

But my flag summary shows that I've managed to flag a question twice (I didn't realise I had):

Has flagging recently been changed to allow more than one flag, is this a bug, or have I missed something?

You can flag for spam and something else, like on one post I had first flag as NAA and then, after stumbling on another post of the same user, I realized it was spam. So I came back on the post and flagged it as spam, and the 2 flags were active at the same moment. –  Hugo Dozois Apr 17 '13 at 12:51

You can reflag after the previous flag was handled, I assume that is what happened in your example.

Ah, I see, that makes sense (of course). Thanks, I'll accept shortly. –  Danny Beckett Apr 17 '13 at 12:00

No, the rule is still the same. But in fact it happened when you flagged the post for second time; the first flagged was already handled by 10K+ users.
