With the change in the Late Answers review queue, I've found myself hellbanned for flagging suspicious but old spam-like activity. I would like to know if I'm indeed flagbanned to Hell.

Too many of your recent flags have been declined - please review them instead of flagging this post!

Some of older flags were declined but the underlying posts were eventually deleted:

  • @MichaelHampton - so it's a week-long ban. Okay, thanks. Commented Oct 5, 2015 at 5:46

    As an aside, I think I would have declined most of those flags too. Those zipitbackup posts don't appear to be spam to me. See also serverfault.com/help/promotion and serverfault.com/help/product-support Commented Oct 5, 2015 at 5:47
  • @MichaelHampton - I see your point. What intrigued me at the time was the coincidence between the two users, asking and answering q's on one product only. Was puzzled why one of the spam flags got marked helpful but all others did not. Commented Oct 5, 2015 at 5:52

    Yeah, IMHO, standards on the site have changed enough that the older posts are hard. "How do I do X?" "Here's a link to a GREAT PRODUCT that does Y!" Uhhhh. Skip. And wince. Commented Oct 5, 2015 at 19:30

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the ban consigned me to Limbo, and only for a week. Commented Oct 10, 2015 at 0:07
