I flagged an answer as 'Very Low Quality,' which has a description of "This answer has severe formatting or content problems. This answer is unlikely to be salvageable through editing, and might need to be removed."
The answer was terribly formatted and was full of spelling and grammar errors.
It also happened to be incorrect, however I didn't flag it because it was inaccurate. I flagged it because it seemed to me that it couldn't be saved through edits. It was a 'Very Low Quality' answer by a first time user.
My flag was declined:
declined - flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer
But I didn't flag it for this! I flagged it because it
[had] severe formatting or content problems. This answer [was] unlikely to be salvageable through editing
I guess what I would like to know is, what satisfies the criteria for a "very low quality" answer if what I flagged doesn't? I'll note it's probably the lowest quality answer I've seen in my time on the site in terms of grammar, spelling, formatting, etc.
I'll also note that I haven't linked the answer here so as not to alienate or "call out," so to speak, the user; if needed I can edit the link in.
