If a user posts a flag, stating that a post is inflammatory, to what extent should the moderator investigate said post? Should they perform any research to confirm that there is or is not any such issues?
A user accused a moderator of deliberately allowing religious bigotry, on one of the sites I visit. It appears to come down to the fact that the user did not explain themselves, and simply stated that the post contained bigotry, without explaining why it was considered religious bigotry.
The user remarked that, as the highest ranking user on the site, they expected a thorough investigation. I feel this applies to all moderation across Stack Exchange, so I wanted to ask, here.
How much investigation do we expect from our moderators, in following up flags?
