I recently got over the 10k rep limit and therefore have access to the 10k tools. Of course, this makes me really happy because I can now contribute to SO in ways I was unable to before.
So, I'm happily sitting at the
Review page, and I go for the flags first. However, I notice that a lot of the questions that are flagged are flagged for reasons that are commonly reasons for closure (eg.
What is causing these "flags"? How do I handle them?
I thought that the user who flagged the post with this reason might have done so due to insufficient rep to vote to close. Since I don't have access to who flagged the post, I can't confirm this (can anyone confirm/deny?). But then, I can't flag it for that reason either and am therefore forced to disagree with their flag and vote for closure.
How/Should I propagate the same flag reason that was used to create the flag?
If I feel that the question should indeed be closed, is disagreeing with the flag and voting to close the correct thing to do? My rationale is that the voting system will take care of the closure while reducing the load on the moderators (disagreeing with the flag should remove it from their queue).
Am I going about this right? Am I interpreting the flags correctly?
