    Lately I've flagged several posts for only containing a photo, meme, or 1-word response, sometimes not even relevant to the discussion in the thread, but after being reviewed by Mods, it was deemed that no action was warranted.

    This is, of course, fine as I'm not a Mod and this isn't my site. My question, though, is do I need to stop flagging these? It was my understand that they were discouraged and generally removed to keep discussions productive and civil. However, I don't want to make more work for the Mods, who already work very hard to keep the forums running, by flagging posts unnecessarily.

    I'll attach an example. Please let me know if I should stop flagging these types of things, as I don't want to burden anyone.

    Thanks!

    One word posts, or posts that we would class as frivolous are still against the forum rules.

    As you have been, please continue to report posts that you feel may contravene these rules. Each will be reviewed and acted upon if appropriate.

    I haven't looked at the specifics of your above example and why it may or may not have been acted on, but if you like further clarification from an Admin then please use the Contact Us link.
