Closing this again, as I see very little constructive discussion going on here, and there are in fact a number of resentments and faintly veiled attacks/assumptions regarding others in the community that clearly go against at the very least the spirit of our CoC. I have flagged and hidden some of those.
I do try to review all flagged posts. I admit that I have not been as on top of it as I should have for the last while, and I apologise for that. That said, very few posts have actually gotten hidden thanks to multiple people flagging them. There are a few, yes, but I would assume that most of the ones that @hiccup is complaining about are ones that I reviewed and agreed with (and I think there might have been some non-flagged ones that I flagged and hid myself).
I will respond to a couple of the questions asked in the OP though:
Just because a number of people have ’d a given post, doesn’t mean the post does not violate one of more parts of our Code of Conduct and it does not factor in when I review flags or in how I handle them.
Others have responded to the automated parts of the system, but in the end it is me who yays or nays flags.
If you have questions about why a given post was flagged/hidden, feel free to write me at email@example.com and I will do my best to get back to you ASAP (though be warned that you may not like or agree with my reply).
