comment Yet another "why was my flag declined" question
Moderators are expected to act in... moderation. You might wanna consider earning 20K already, @bjb - then you can vote to delete answers based on your own criteria.

comment Yet another "why was my flag declined" question
Let's not do this again, @bjb. If 6 is practically the same as 0 then 10 is pretty much 6; if 10 is effectively 0 then twice-ten is also 0. If twice-10 is 0 then 10 10s is also 0, as is 100 10s... Pretty soon you're back to "this novel-length answer contains a link it must be link-only!" And the mods are rolling their eyes. Be precise, flag answers that contain no information, or don't bother.

comment So I failed this review audit
NAN is by definition not an action, @Nathan. You're saying that the post you're looking at is perfectly neutral, neither good nor bad, unable to be improved or moderated. This is... Extremely unlikely; a more plausible explanation is that you do not personally know what to do with the post but are unwilling to click "Skip" for some reason.

My point is that if you know what you're doing, you should never chose "no action needed". Hence the audit as an educational opportunity.

comment Should I flag link only answers to tool request questions?
It did mention static analysis, @Mogsdad. But yes, I reworded the question significantly: the only way to salvage it is to focus on specific needs, and in this case I had to read between the lines a bit. Regardless, both you and I have earned our editing privileges - we do not need to cater to the whims of reviewers and should therefore focus on the needs of the authors and readers.

Since someone apparently wanted to try this again with *only* the mistakes and none of the potential upsides...

Well, then you have an example of how to alter even a very borderline tool-rec question if you so desire. And yes, that answer describes the purpose of the tool and how it relates to the problem.

comment Should I flag link only answers to tool request questions?
You irritatingly picked a rather difficult example, @durron. I've done my best to clean it up, and I think it could be useful... But I wouldn't exactly hold it up as a shining example.
