In How does the Offensive Flag work? I found 2 rules that may conflict:
- Each offensive flag counts as a downvote for calculating the post's score.
- As offensive flags expire after 48 hours if the thresholds aren't reached.
When a question or an answer is flagged as offensive, less than 6 times in 48 hours, and the flags expire, what will happen to the down-votes? Are they kept or removed?
