The author of this question originally set a scene in which three players were involved, but then posed question didn't involve one of the players at all. An observant user left a comment along these lines:
If player X isn't relevant to the question, I wouldn't bother mentioning player X at all.
(Note: This is not a verbatim quote. I cannot see deleted comments, so I'm quoting from memory.)
The question was subsequently edited to remove any mention of player X. So, I flagged the comment as "No longer needed". The flag was declined.
Was it appropriate to flag this comment as "No longer needed"?
