I as well as other users have flagged some of the recent questions about ads and tracking users, so people can have some forewarning before their information is all over the internet.
However, the flags have all been declined, with this canned response (at least on my flags):
flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
Of course, this definitely needs moderator intervention, because normal users cannot add featured to posts.
I'm posting here because I'm trying to get some perspective on this situation and why mods aren't letting users know about information that they may want to know.
Here are my two flags:
[featured] -- this will be very important to a lot of users.
Can this be [featured]? It's important and people need to see it (it involves fingerprinting). They also need to know to have an adblocker enabled.
Why have flags of this type been declined?
