As a moderator, sometimes it's nice to defer a flag but not have it in the mod-queue. There are various reasons, but the simplest is that if the (1) count is static, you kinda gloss over it, but if it disappears today and reappears tomorrow, we're not going to gloss over it as often.
Example of why this would be useful: Say someone A asks a question. B flags it. I go and leave a comment asking for it to be clarified. I want B to know that I've seen it, and give A time to respond before I act on the flag.
So, can we have a way to delay a flag for 24 hours?
