In What process is running before I even get a prompt?, the OP describes a problem with their login shell, soliciting several answers containing troubleshooting suggestions, but no real solution. Then the OP was updated to say: "This issue has mysteriously resolved itself...I can't reproduce [the cause]."
So I flagged the question as too localized, but my flag was declined. Is such a question not too localized? Did the mod miss the edit? Should I have added a comment to the already-long comment thread explaining my flag?
