Every once in a while I take a look at the tools page and see a high number of flags - like right now. And there is indeed some pretty spammy stuff in there.
It's fairly self-evident what to do with flagged questions, I think - just vote to close/delete if the flags are in fact accurate.
But what about flagged answers? It doesn't really seem like there's much we can do about those. Should we:
- Flag them again, hoping to bump the answer down and/or get it auto-deleted?
- Flag for (real) moderator attention, i.e. to confirm "yes this is really spam"?
- Just leave them alone (assuming that a proper mod will find it soon)?
Also - is there any particular action we should be taking if a post is erroneously flagged - i.e. somebody got annoyed that a question wasn't marked CW?
Some guidelines on how best to use this feature would be appreciated.
