Yesterday there was a user who created spam answers in several GTA V-related questions which were not actually answers and also which contained a link to a website which was claimed to have a download of GTA V for free.
I flagged each of these (5 in total) with a custom reason. The reason I gave was that they were "Not an answer, and claims to link to pirated/hacked software."
One of these flags was accepted as helpful, and it appears the poster's account was then deleted. The rest of my flags were marked as declined.
Is this how it should work? Can I get credit for these flags, or at least have the declined ones removed from my history so that they don't count against me?
