Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

How do you deal with this, if it is a problem?

Can you cite a specific example? I'm not sure I understand what you mean. – Jon Seigel Jan 17 '11 at 4:36

You have two choices:

  1. Flag them anyway. If they don't really deserve it, nothing will happen as far as the site is concerned (because no one else will flag them) apart from your secret flag reliability rating dropping off a bit. But, you might feel better.

  2. Ignore them and get on with your life. This has all the advantages of #1, plus the added bonus of being slightly less work.

As far as them never responding, if you post a reply that adds to the discussion with additions, corrections or alternatives, it doesn't really matter if the person you were replying even sees it, nevermind replying. It will still benefit plenty of other people that come across the discussion.

This answer might also apply.
