I was just chatting in chat when I saw a little ping-like circle except it was blue and on the wrong side.

Blue chat ping

So I did what any good citizen would do and I clicked it. It quickly prompted me to review a chat message that was flagged.

message saying that the chat message was flagged spam/offensive

I tried searching Meta for information on reviewing chat flags and if that is a privilege afforded certain users at certain rep levels and I found nothing. Is this intended behavior? Similar to review queues? Offensive flags seem a bit on the moderator side of things but I am uncertain.

    Regarding the dupe: "When you flag a message as spam/offensive, the flag will draw the attention of every moderator and user with >10k reputation currently on the chat network. In both cases, they’ll be asked to determine if the flag is valid or not" You do have 10k rep network-wide (congrats!), so yep, these pop up for you – Jenayah Feb 28 '19 at 3:51
