I could not help but notice that at times, a few of the other flags which I'd raised used to take a touch more time than the others to be processed. The latest one of them being a flag on this particular answer. I'd raised an other flag on this answer stating a reason that it wasn't an answer, but a comment as it did not really answer the question(after going through this discussion on Meta).
That flag was raised on Nov 23 at 7:24 and its still in active state. So my question is whether the moderators consciously take that little bit extra time to handle a few edge-case flags? I know that the size of the other flags queue is, most of the times, a bit on the larger side and the mods are trying their best to handle them ASAP. But I would just like to confirm whether it is just the size of that queue which causes the delay in the handling of other flags or do the moderators(at-least a few) really take some time to analyze the flag in depth before acting upon them?
