I flagged this answer for a moderator as the answer was so short I believe it should have been added as a comment. Furthermore, the poster added a line of dots to deliberately foil the minimum length check, which detracts from the quality we normally expect here.
I flagged it for a moderator rather than flagging as "not an answer" since I felt it should be converted to a comment and that it was not immediately obvious why it was not an answer (it is an answer but the foiling of the length check was discovered by trying to edit the post).
My flag was declined thusly:
declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
Thus, a poster has deliberately flouted the length requirements and a moderator has knowingly let it pass (I assume it was Bluefeet, as he/she has subsequently edited the post). As it goes this is a minor concern, but I'd like to ask whether I should just stop flagging these. I've flagged many of them in the past, and as far as I recall they have all been approved. Perhaps I got a different moderator this time
