  • @kalina I only wrote that it was unacceptable because my question was unacceptable without writing that it was unacceptable.

    the bridge frequently leaks into meta, this is not a new phenomenon - not sure what the deal with your flag status is - I've just been through all of my flags and I've never seen 'none' before...

  • If I remember correctly, this occurs when you place a "Not an Answer" flag on an answer that is deleted without moderator intervention. Commented Apr 19, 2013 at 14:05
  • Basically Rory is right. The flag was nulled because it was raised and resolved by the same person (you).

This post on Meta Stack Exchange suggests that when you vote to close a question, any flags you also raise on it are nulled, to prevent an unnecessary (and exploitable) increase in helpful flags:

I assume that this has been extrapolated out to answers and that you cast a delete vote as well as raising the flag? This would likely result in the flag being recorded as 'none' to fit the pattern Jeff describes for questions.
