Does "flag for removal" on /review mean flag for removal from the site?

I think I have been making a horrible mistake thinking it means flag for removal from /review!

If it does mean removal from the site, then maybe as Tim Stone suggested, "Flag for deletion" would be less ambiguous?

Am I the only one confused by this?

    +1, good point. I would like a way of removing 'ok' stuff from my list, so that I don't have to triage it every time. Related – Benjol Jan 22 '11 at 19:20
  • Actually, these are both dupes of this one (@Benjol since Josh will be notified anyways) – Pops Jan 22 '11 at 19:31
  • @Pop. Half dupe here, 'cos Josh's real question is about changing the name of the 'flag for removal'. Point taken though... – Benjol Jan 22 '11 at 19:38
  • @Benjol, yeah, that's why I didn't vote to close this one (but did the other one). – Pops Jan 22 '11 at 19:58
  • @PopularDemand Surrrrre, go ahead and claim your post is better and mine is a dupe, I see what you're doing here! (I edited the question to make it less of a dupe) – The Unhandled Exception Jan 22 '11 at 20:19

  • That's very helpful, thanks @PopularDemand! – The Unhandled Exception Jan 22 '11 at 21:14
  • Thanks @JeffAtwood! I think this is an improvement. – The Unhandled Exception Jan 23 '11 at 15:23
