In the past, here and on other SE sites, I flagged many times to protect some questions that I think they should be. Every time, it's ended fine.
In every case, question
- has attracted a lot a viewers in the past (10k+)
- has been reactivated recently
- has a lot of "poor" answers from new users
Today, I flagged a question with a lot of views, a nice answer, but with 3 bad answers (one has been deleted since). This question was actived today. The flag's review was :
declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
Is it appropriate to flag questions that should be protected ?
In other words, does this kind of situation need a moderator's intervention ?
