There was a question on Worldbuilding that was closed:
A few days later, I saw this question:
The user repeated the question word-for-word with no attempt at correcting the problem. This time, instead of voting to close, I flagged the question with this comment:
Reposing a closed question word for word
My flag was declined with this message:
flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
Is someone abusing the system in this way not something that needs moderator attention? What is the correct way of handling problems where the user seems to be going past the limits of just closing a question?
