I recently flagged a comment as "no longer needed", and the flag got declined. The thing is, the comment wasn't really obsolete, but rather a bit too chatty. I don't want to target the comment here, so I won't link to it. The exact timestamp of the flag is
I think the confusion might have arisen from how the flag is called, "no longer needed". Its description is:
This comment is obsolete, chatty, or otherwise unnecessary.
I've read (1, 2), but my case is different. First of all, my case isn't a flagging spree, as in the second case. Second, the comment itself isn't a reply to a non-obsolete comment, as in the first case, but it feels like it could very easily ignite some chat in the comment section. Also, it wasn't an old comment, but a new one posted in the same day as I flagged it.
What were the reasons behind declining the flag, if any? The reason I'm asking is because I can't fully understand why the flag was declined.
