In regards to http://stackoverflow.com/q/21650114/1348195
I left a comment suggesting that the author should re-tag his question after he went into a 'tag war' with another high-rep user on the site. (I've corrected it once only to notice the ongoing tag-war later).
After the user responded (misunderstanding the issue), we exchanged a few more messages where I politely (in retrospect it was kind of snarky) tried to explain that the mvc tag is completely inappropriate for that question and he will get a lot less likely relevant traffic and more irrelevant traffic.
Eventually, I invited him into a chat room offering to explain how he could use the system better (he didn't join) and flagged the post for a mod to take care of the tagging issue.
My flag was marked "Helpful" however the moderator did not re-tag the question. They deleted all the comments (which I get, they were meta comments) but did not change the tag.
I wanted to ask why the tag was not changed? Was I wrong in flagging the mod?
By the way - I can totally see the rationale from a moderation stand point to not engage with the user and re-tag their question which might come off as hostility. I wanted to know if an action was taken or if the user was asked to reconsider. Mainly because I want to know what to do in such future cases.
I'm also aware of and read Why does flag marking as helpful/declined not always correlate with moderator action? . This question is about specifically re-tagging and what mods can and/or should do in this case.
(By the way, since I invited him to chat a room was created - here is a partial segment of the exchange it is not the whole exchange but it should get the point across).
