Today I came across this answer, which has a specially highlighted comment:
I wondered how these comments got added, as they didn't seem to be a result of flagging or heavy downvoting. Nor do I get the impression that it is the result of any of the comments added to the answer.
After some searching I found this post on meta.stackexchange.com that explains the moderators can add banners, and that there are several available. And this post with rather strong arguments against this feature.
Do I need to flag for moderator attention if I think such a banner is appropriate? Or is there another way?¹
Can some links or hover texts be added to these canned text like in the example (from the skeptics cite). So that it is more clear what is expected from the Answerer?²
Does the poster get a notification that such a banner is added? If not they might never notice.
These "bannered" questions obviously need attention in the form of editing. The poster might not be the only one being able to do so. Is there a way to find these "bannered" items? There doesn't seem to be a list even on the 10K+ tools page.
¹ That feels like calling 911, when I just want to reach my girlfriend when she is at work and has forgotten her mobile.
² The text behind the link for
cite could explain the inclusion of links, but also the use of text of man pages, relative specific for our site.
