Recently, I had a situation at Travel.SE, where I raised flags in good faith misunderstanding the purpose. Out of 7 declined flags in the past 7 days, 3 were my mistake, 3 were in good faith and 1 was later actioned.

Quoting a moderator in Travel.SE chat:
I think a 7-day ban is definitely an overkill. I agree with automated silencing bans after too many rejected flags, but the duration should be shorter
The mods have no way to remove such bans and have to contact a CM, when I'm sure the CM has much better things to do. Can we allow mods to remove automatic flag bans?
