On Sec.SE, it is not uncommon for people to flag (and delete) posts that spout conspiracies and do not give a real answer. I came across a question like that here on Crypto.SE and flagged it. The result was "helpful". Later, I came across another answer in the same vein and flagged it as well. That flag was declined, pointing out that flags are not used for incorrect answers. I am curious to know what the difference between the two questions is. To me, it seems like an answer that posts conspiracies fits squarely under "not a real answer", at least if the core of the answer itself is a conspiracy (rather than an off-hand mention of one in an otherwise useful answer). Can someone explain the discrepancy in flagging results? At what point does a such a post deserve flagging?
Twofish vs. Serpent vs. AES (or a combo)
Reason: silly conspiracy nonsense, as well as not being a real answer
Why was WEP apparently not reviewed by many cryptographers?
Reason: as mentioned in the comments, tinfoil conspiracy nonsense that doesn't answer the actual question
Result: declined - flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer
