<p><a href="http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8340181/sequence-diagram-generation/8340219#8340219">An answer</a> I flagged today as being of a "very low quality" was deemed to be "helpful":</p>

<p><img src="http://i.stack.imgur.com/Pb5E8.png" alt="enter image description here"></p>

<p>yet it was not removed. Note that I don't mind it still being there (the question is closed, so it might even get deleted with the question in due time), but I thought that "helpful" flags always caused the answer to be deleted. Am I wrong, or did something go wrong in this case?</p>

<p>I scrolled through ~10 of my "very low quality" flags that were "helpful", and all of them were removed by a mod.</p>
