I'm getting very confused about flagging link-only answers as it seems that the policy has changed over time and doesn't seem to be consistent (at least to me).
When I come across an answer that would be no use if the link was dead, I flag it.
Generally, these flags are accepted.
However, today I flagged this answer and my flag was declined with the following message:
Did I do something wrong or is this just a symptom of different moderators having slightly different policies? I really just want to know if I should continue flagging or not? Should I have flagged and left a comment? Should I have just moved on? Or something else?
For what it's worth, I thought the fact that the answer had been accepted somehow made it less permissible to be link-only.
