I flagged this post as off-topic under the "Recommending a tool, library, or favourite off-site resource" reason and it was declined.

I'm usually pretty spot on with flagging, but on the other couple of declined flags I have it's been pretty clear to me why they were declined. I don't see it with this one though, can anyone help explain why its on-topic?

    The person who handled your flag probably declined it by mistake. It looks correct to me.

    Or there were other flags on the post that needed to be declined, and yours got caught in the crossfire.

    Don't worry, the question is closed now.

    This is an issue that moderators can only decline all flags or approve all flags, so if there was (for example) a spam flag on the post they would have to decline them all. This is set to change so hopefully won't be a problem for too much longer Mar 14, 2014 at 9:58
  • Ahh, I see. Thanks for that information.
