A couple of weeks ago I flagged the comments on this post:
With the comment:
Additional information posted as comments.
The purpose of flagging was that the question author was not editing his question to include the additional information, but was instead posting it as comments. Since community members can't delete comments, it requires a moderator to move this information to the post and delete the original comments.
The moderator response was:
declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
Is this not an appropriate use for flags? Does not the garbled comments make the post less useful? Should not a moderator be made aware of this?
