I flagged this answer as offensive, and then voted to delete it. Then, before the flag was acted on by a mod, other members of the community voted to delete the post, and it was deleted.
Looking at my flagging summary, there is no indication that it was actioned, or marked "helpful" or otherwise, nor did my flag weight increase.
So, what happened? Was my flag automatically deleted when the post was? Did it just not get marked "helpful" for whatever reason?
If the latter, should flagged posts be automatically marked as "helpful" when the post gets deleted (by the mods or the community)?
Very much related, but not a duplicate of I'm not gaining flag weight for my Spam flags
