I find it annoying that expanding a post on /review removes the flag link, forcing me to click through to the post in order to flag it. As a result, I usually ignore questions for which it's not clear from the extract.

You shouldn't need to click through to the post.

When you show full answer, the link | edit | flag links should show up.

Gar, how could I be that blind. Thanks for pointing out the obvious. – marcog Mar 8 '11 at 20:06

You're doing it wrong!

/review isn't designed as a one-stop shop for flag submission. The "flag for attention" links are just a convenience for the blatant "HI I HAS PRBLM 2.any anser yet ne1???" posts.

Even if a post seems kinda flaggable from /review, you should always click through to see it in context. There are a lot of posts that contain non-obvious embedded links and/or that only appear valid after you see the questions they're attached to. One common one is "this is the right answer," which looks like a comment incorrectly posted as an answer at first, but is actually a link to a page that does answer the question.

I'm not blatantly flagging like that. An example of where it's not clear from the snippet, but is clear from the expanded post without context is when a user gives a long blurb about his experiences of the same (or related) problem and then asking for help with zero useful input. Example: stackoverflow.com/questions/5229134/… – marcog Mar 8 '11 at 20:14
