I've flagged an answer to moderators attention a few days back, because what I've deemed the appropriate action, couldn't be performed by me.
Note: Meanwhile the question was migrated to http://serverfault.com.
It was about a paragraph that wasn't related with the question, having no meaning on the answer itself, but it would probably be useful as a comment to help future visitors.
The flag was placed and later on declined as can be seen here:
I'm a bit confused about the reason provided:
The action requested could not be performed by me.
If I was to edit the answer, I could only remove the paragraph. As I can't place it as comment on behalf another user.
The decline reason mentions the "accept rate" ?!? How is this related?
By the comments from this question: Is there a way to discuss a declined flag?, the appropriate action about the action taken on a flag, is to place a question here and allow a discussion on the matter, thus arriving to a conclusion about what happened.
So, why was I "pestering the OP" about my "accept rate" when placing a flag to request an action that couldn't be performed by me the way I did deemed appropriate?
A couple ideas come to mind:
The moderator didn't understand my end goal.
The moderator justified the reason behind the declining of my flag while believing to be addressing another flag.
