I recently flagged this spam post (visible to 10k+ users) with a in need of moderator intervention flag with the following message:
Redact post history please
It was declined with the following message:
declined - its spam, no need to redact
We want to remove all advertising. The post content is replaced with This answer was marked as spam or rude or abusive and is therefore not shown - you can see the revision history for details for a reason.
As of time of writing, we have 82 users who can view deleted posts. We don’t want to promote the product by not removing the phone number or email. It’s personal information and we don’t want to violate rules by not removing it.
I know redaction takes 2 moderators, and in this case it isn’t necessary. But still, shouldn’t the flag have been marked as helpful?
