@Vivikta We asked you to flag citation banners of 7-8 per day.. More than this from any user will be rejected..
 
5:59 PM
@TheDestroyer SORRY, if me flagging more than prescribed offended the MODS. However, Technically, you shouldn't reject a flag, just because it's "out-of-the MOD-prescribed" 'Chandrashekhara limit'. I refrained from much flagging yesterday. So made it up today. But, since you're the MOD, I can't argue much. So okay, won't flag. However, as per rules - a user can flag as many flags they have "left" for a day. I still didn't flag as much As I could have though. :))

"But, since you're the MOD, I can't argue much. " - You can discuss, don't need to argue
"Technically, you shouldn't reject a flag, just because it's "out-of-the MOD-prescribed" 'Chandrashekhara limit'" - it can be done
