I flagged this answer (note the link now goes nowhere, except maybe higher rep mods can see it?) twice. The answer essentially said "Apple wouldn't have a trash if they didn't intend you to use it, so why are you questioning people using the trash as a backup folder?" It was posted as an answer, but it is pretty clearly a comment to/criticism of this answer. Both times I flagged it, the flag was declined stating "flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer". The second time I wrote about a paragraph explaining that the prior flag was declined, and why I disagreed with it:
I previously flagged this and it was rejected stating that technical inaccuracies or altogether wrong answers are not reasons to flag/delete. This answer is not technically inaccurate, or altogether wrong. To be technically inaccurate or wrong, it would have to be an answer. It does not attempt to answer the original question. It instead comments on a statement made in another answer regarding using Trash as a backup folder, and whether that is its intended use.
I see the answer is now gone, but the point remains that somebody (multiple people?) declined the flag twice when it was (in my opinion) accurate. Even if the consensus was the answer should remain, the reason for declining the flag was clearly wrong/not relevant to the answer.
Am I out in left field here? Was the answer not actually a comment on another answer?
