I was reviewing this link-only answer, and marked it as very low quality because I think that is how link-only answers are handled.
But a moderator stepped in and declined it with the following comment:
declined - User has attempted to self-answer so any issues with quality of that answer should be addressed via commenting, editing and/or downvoting rather than flagging.
Shouldn't all link-only answers be attempting to answer? If not, they should be marked as non-answer.
Was it necessary for the moderator to step in rather than leaving this to the review queue?
In this and several similar occasions, I kind of get the feeling that I am wasting the moderator's time by flagging.
