Moderators can choose between dismissing flags as valid or invalid. I understand the choice changes the weight of the users' flag in the future, but I wonder if flagging as valid will change anything to the relevant post.

For example, non-3kers can flag questions with any valid close reason. Does dismissing a flag as valid apply my super-close-vote as suggested by the flagger?

@Popular I guess that's what per-site metas really are about! –  badp Feb 16 '11 at 14:54
