I was going back through my flagging history, and I noticed several flags that had aged away. I looked back at the questions/answers, and found that several of them still had the potential to be flagged (i.e. the flag had merit), but it just got buried.
Is going back and reflagging these older items (say a few months old to even years old) frowned on, or is it a legitimate cleanup procedure? These questions are long buried, but they still exist in the system. Do moderators want these gone or is it enough that they are buried?
This is partially a selfish question, as I am trying for the Marshal badge on SO, but I don't want to do this in an illegitimate fashion.
I saw this related question: Is there a time limit, to how far back answers/questions should be flagged?
However, in this case, there was an original flag that aged away, so is the aging away considered an action that was taken (i.e. not enough attention = shouldn't be deleted/closed/etc)?
