Sorry if this duplicates. I refer to this (which was automatically deleted).
On Apr 17 at 8:41, a moderator closed it unilaterally 'as unclear what you're asking'.
On Apr 17 at 14:30, I then edited my OP to try to clarify. I didn't see any comments explaining the apparent confusion or perceive any confusion; so I requested an explanation as a comment. I don't know if my comment reached the moderator in question; so I later tried to request a reopening and an explanation with a flag, which was declined as follows
flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
, but didn't offer an explanation as I had hoped.
So can a moderator reopen a unilaterally closed question? What ought I to have done?
