I'm just curious because it relates to another question I have. If 10K users have that privilege, does it really make sense to restrict that privilege to the 13 users here that have attained 10K? Or worse, just the moderators?
It seems that our common goal should be to quickly eliminate posts that go against our purpose here. Surely 5K+ (or even 2K+) users have demonstrated a certain desire to work towards that goal?
Not long ago I flagged an answer that was nothing but, "faggot, faggot, faggot,..." Oh whatever. [flag], bye. Yet, the stupid little troll got to enjoy his twisted little handiwork through several downvotes before his post was deleted.
If lower rep (2k or 5k) users could just make those posts go away, they would go away all that much faster.
