Just out of pure curiosity: How are flags handled?
Searching through Meta Stack Exchange and Meta Stack Overflow, I have found bits and pieces on how the flagging works and what is happening behind the scene.
- How are flagged posts handled?
- What are the “spam” and “rude or abusive” (offensive) flags, and how do they work?
- Is there anything broken with the way flags are being handled?
As I understand, there is a voting like system behind, similar to the triage review queue. However there are cases that 'other' things are taken into consideration (Declined flags for joke comment. What should I do?). I am still searching something like documentation to understand how flags are handled.
For example, I have observed that off-topic, duplicate of and unclear what you're asking flags need more time to be handled than others like not an answer. Are there any priorities defined or the reason is the fact that the former are more subjective than the latter?
