This question is related to a post that showed up on meta.SO today: it seems like (self-)deletion of the question dismisses pending spam flags on answers.

This appears to be a bug, since this post (although on invalidation) says the flags should be preserved and not dismissed.

    It wasn't validated because of a self-deletion. It was validated because it was deleted along with the question being deleted.

    Oh. But is it still triggered by self-deletion?

    As far as I can tell, no. Unless there's evidence somewhere that it isn't working.
