Pitching in a day late and a dollar short, and I was gonna do a comment but I wanted a little longer context, and as this is meta, it's usually ok.
There's something to remember when it comes to flags and that is that they are metrics that SO uses to build better algos, and to see where improvements need to be made to their system. We moderators do try to do the right thing, but as you, we too are just people. So we may get it wrong.
So now that I've said what I consider to be a pretty good thing to think about, I'm gonna hit you with the bad stuff. Those algos I mentioned before? If you flag poorly too often (happens more than you might think) the algo turns against you and now you're penalized or prevented from your flagging privileges. There's more documented on meta.se if you wanna go search it out, but it doesn't sound like you're that invested in the minutiae if I had to guess? If you do want to know and can't find it I'll poke too, just lemme know.
The upside to that previous proviso is that it mostly only matters on SO because that one has a ton of flag traffic. It can bite you if you're getting flag blocked here, but that's unlikely due to volume in general.
Just remember we're human, we're happy to volunteer, and we are always glad for meta questions. This is a democracy, not a despocy, and your voice matters! If we are wrong (look, I get called out a lot for being wrong haha), we do what we can to make it right. (ex: If we made an egregiously bad call that cost you rep or got you banned or something, we can reach out to the CM team to see about having things set right.)
When in doubt, in the future, use the "other" option and type it out to us. You can also ping us in chat usually, altho it may take time for us to see the chat and get around (sleep, work, families, weekends, just a few of us)
