Of late I've noticed that multiple flags are waiting for me when I join the PHP chat room on SO. A bulk of these are flags of non English messages so I have no context on why it was flagged.
What would be good is an option to allow people to add a comment/message when flagging messages so that we have more context. It's very difficult to judge a flag by just looking at the single message. I usually have to click through and find out what the surrounding context is for flag. This isn't possible when you click through to a foreign language chat. This option would help not only with the foreign language problem, but also with the context less flag problem.
I realize that this itself can be taken advantage of (in the foreign language case) by adding a note that is essentially false. But someone's sure to pick up on it and eventually report it.
TLDR - I'm starting to see a lot of flags on non English messages(even though they aren't explicitly forbidden), I can ignore them forever or I can act on them if users are allowed to add a note as to why they are flagging them. Needs more context.
This just popped up when I was talking in the room about the issue. I've seen the flag count go as high as 8 or 9 flags.
