Back in April, I flagged a post as "not a real question". The post was subsequently closed and reopened, then closed again and finally just reopened a 2nd time a short time ago.
I still firmly believe the post is not acceptable for SO, so I went to use my recently acquired close vote privilege and was greeted with the following messsage:
I specifically clicked close and not flag (and figuring I just clicked in error, I tried again and got the same message).
I do understand that, in the new closing system, flagging for closure is treated very much like a close vote (since it throws it to the close vote queue) except no vote is actually recorded. My issue is why should by flag be counted as a close vote when I never actually voted to close.
