One was declined, one was marked "helpful"
This was flagged as not a real question - however, what ended up happening...
audio stopped working sudden in a .avi file - it got closed as too localized, in part because I voted, in part (and this is a guess) because of the flag.
You can't see the entire flag message in the screenshot, but it was this:
duplicate of - https://askubuntu.com/questions/35625/how-do-i-make-unity-remember-which-applications-are-in-the-launcher

Can you please figure out how to handle flags consistently? I'm guessing that these were probably handled by different people - however, that's just a guess. Note that I'm not getting up in arms about my flag weight or anything like that - I'm just asking why they were handled... inconsistently with the end result (well, except in the first case)
