When someone flags a chat post as spam/offensive, some users get a popup asking them if the suspension is valid or invalid.
I know if a certain threshold is reached, that user whose post was flagged gets an immediate 30 minute chat suspension.
This brings to mind a number of questions:
- Are the users who get these notifications random?
- How many valid/invalid votes does it need before a user is suspended or a flag is cleared with no action?
- Are there any consequences to flagging a vote and having your flag declared invalid, like the main sites' Flag Weight?
P.S. I'm asking, because it is apparently common for people to flag Youtube videos they don't like, and I personally have gotten temporarily suspended for such in the past.
