Under the following question,
there was a comment where one user said something like "those are just metaphors". To this another user replied by bringing in completely unrelated stuffs like darwin's theory of evolution to initiate an argument. Needless to say, the second comment was completely irrelevant to the topic and was provocative in nature.
I flagged it using a custom reason " irrelevant comment, just to try provoke the other user and draw him into an unnecessary debate. – Rickross 9 hours ago declined "
Why was my flagged declined? Was it declined by mistake (it has happened with me in the past)? BTW, both the comments are now deleted and the 2nd comment (the one I flagged) deserved more than 100% to be deleted.That's why I was surprised when I found the flag declined.
