I flagged this question for review and suggested it be closed. My flag was declined, but the question was put on hold. So that I can write better flags, I'd like some clarification. It seems to me from the FAQs that a question would never be outright closed. It's put "on hold" first. So, really, I should have flagged it to be put on hold. Is that correct?
If a question was totally unsalvageable, would it be closed or deleted? (This is a hypothetical. I'm not applying it to the linked question.)
Thanks for your help.
