Earlier today I flagged a post, and I was torn between a borderline spam flag and a VLQ flag (or NAA maybe). I decided to flag with a free-form text, and say that I'm torn between these options, asking for guidance.
Shortly after the flag was cleared as helpful saying that the answer is "comprehensive" and does not constitute as spam, and it's not VLQ nor NAA. I downvoted and moved on.
Few minutes ago I saw that the post was deleted by a moderator, and by looking around, I noticed the post on the "Reviewed" list somewhere indicated that someone had flagged it shortly before that deletion.
Do the moderators see previous flags on these sort of occasions?
I'm wondering because I wonder if the moderator who deleted the post knows that someone else on the moderator team thought it was not pure junk, and "not worth deleting" (or even flagging!) and in that case, I also wonder if in these sort of cases moderators talk to each other about these sort of things?
Needless to say that I have no complaints about the post being deleted; if anything, I would complain that someone (other than the user posting) thought it would be a good idea to keep it on the site.
