I have noticed that since the moderator election my flags are getting declined significantly more frequently. Specifically I placed 9 flags since the election, 5 of which got declined. What I find particularly annoying is that some of those post I flagged got dealt with even though my flag got denied. (Example: very low quality -> "declined - a moderator reviewed your flag, but found no evidence to support it". The question is on hold now with 3 downvotes).
Have I just been unlucky in this sample or is has a new spirit entered the moderator board with the last election? I am trying to help by raising flags (and I think above numbers indicate that I don't raise them carelessly). I also take pride in getting a "helpful" on the flags, but if my "helpful"-rate from now on is gonna be 44% (it used to be 82%, for what that's worth) I'd probably stop flagging altogether.
