When someone flags a post, can the author of that post handle the flag himself?
(I'm hoping the answer is no!)
Based on some research, it seems mods can in fact dismiss flags against their own posts. As such, I have retagged this feature-request so that this can be changed. I believe that mods are naturally biased towards their own posts and therefore not in a position to accurately judge complaints against them. These flags should be left for other mods to handle.
