Today I attempted to flag a question as spam on Stack Overflow; however, it was deleted the same moment as I cast the flag. The UI shows a popup
You don't have the permission to use this type of flag
which, according to the status-completed tag on these bug reports from 2014:

- Flagging a deleted post should not give "you don't have permission"
should not happen anymore. Both have an answer from 2018 which indicate the fix broke again. A better text would be
This post has been deleted, so your flag couldn't be processed.
or something like that.
