As suggested by Catija in comments, each site has different flagging policy, so I've posted on Stack Overflow meta. Stack Overflow meta - Which flag should we use for questions which request how to crack?
We are never going to get involved with judging whether a question is dealing with an illegal activity.
I'll leave this question for information.
Currently we have these type of flags.
- Rude or abusive
- Should be closed...
- Very low quality
- In need of moderator intervention
But it seems we don't have standard flags for cracks, exploits, or malicious requests. I think it's a reason why we sometimes choose moderator intervention flag and get declined with comments like this:
declined - Using standard flags helps us prioritize problems and resolve them faster. Please familiarize yourself with the list of standard flags: see What is Flagging?
I think "should be closed..." flag is nearest, but its sub menus are:
- Duplicate of...
- Off-topic because...
- Unclear what you're asking
- Too broad
- Primarily opinion-based
And they seem not intended for illegal or shady practices.
So, I want to ask which "standard" flag should we choose for such questions. If no suitable flag exists, please add such a standard flag.
