I just noticed that I had almost as many spam/offensive flags as moderator flags, which I'm quite sure wasn't the case earlier today.

Is this also dependant on the flag weight now?

If this is true, I wholly support and applaud the change (I seem to have 34 now). – Michael Petrotta Mar 4 '11 at 23:27

Yes, there has been a change as mentioned here by Marc. They're based on reputation/weight.

Though that comment doesn't explicitly mention the spam/offensive flags, unless that's counted as part of the etc, so I'm still not completely certain that he wasn't just talking about that previous flag weight changes that did not affect these flags. – ho1 Mar 4 '11 at 23:33
@ho1, I took it as being included in the etc. Could be wrong though... – Brandon Mar 4 '11 at 23:35
You are correct, Brandon. We also got more comment flags! – Shog9 Mar 4 '11 at 23:48
