I just now happened to flag a question for moderator attention, for the reason that I felt it could be considered a duplicate of another question. I only wanted to bring it to a moderator's attention as a possible duplicate, and leave the final determination up to them; I didn't feel strongly enough that I wanted to vote to close it myself. However, it seems that when a 3000+ user flags for moderator attention, this doubles as a vote to close. I think these operations should be separate; there are many situations where I feel it might be worthwhile to ask a moderator to take a look at a controversial or borderline case, but withhold from taking action oneself.
Is it possible for a 3000+ user to flag a question for moderator attention without voting to close it?
