This question is staying in the flag queue. There are no flags on it that haven’t been dealt with, and using the button to deal with no flags isn’t helping. What’s going on?

Did you intentionally open 800 tabs to hide your other... cough tabs? – Emrakul Jun 20 '13 at 0:38
@KnightswhosayNi: No. Maybe that’s why I keep running out of swap space… – Ryan O'Hara Jun 20 '13 at 0:39
These three (1, 2, 3) also appear without any flags. – Ryan O'Hara Jun 20 '13 at 0:41
+1 just for the tabs. – ɥʇǝS Jun 20 '13 at 0:49
Heh, noob mod. Just delete the question and the flags will go away... /kidding (sort of) – Yannis Jun 20 '13 at 1:02
I have more tabs open than that in each tabgroup, and I run about 5 tab groups. I'm a tab hoarder. If you are running out of swap space it's probably Chrome's execution model (each tab tends to be a separate process). – slugster Jun 20 '13 at 1:21
@slugster: I think my Chrome flags are at fault; I have GPU acceleration turned on, and the GPU process alone routinely takes up 1GB or more of memory and needs to be killed frequently. Sigh. =) – Ryan O'Hara Jun 20 '13 at 1:26
How do you even know which tab is which? :P – Doorknob Jun 20 '13 at 1:43
He can see deeeeep behind the scenes into the actual browser rendering engine and instinctively know which tab to click! :D – jmort253 Jun 20 '13 at 1:58
@Doorknob Shift+Esc ;] – Emrakul Jun 20 '13 at 3:27
Setting status-norepro, as it appears that the flags did get dismissed... – Oded Jun 20 '13 at 10:23
@Oded so it was cache? The flag queue is cached too?? :) – Shadow Wizard Jun 20 '13 at 10:29
@ShaWizDowArd - I don't really know. That bit of code was mercilessly refactored in the past couple of days and then deployed between the time this question was raised and my waking up... – Oded Jun 20 '13 at 10:32
