I saw this question flagged as low quality because of length and content. I thought the question was direct, so it didn't need to be any longer than it was. I see many posts flagged for the same reason that are direct questions or answers.
It seems like it is an abuse of the flagging system if every short question/answer is flagged. Sometimes a downvote is more appropriate if you don't think enough thought or background was put into the question. What do the rest of you think?
