Ugh, really? x.x I get that DA might not want to check all flagged deviations--I mean, that would take a long time. But I think they'd probably be able to implement some sort of system where the artist's notified of it, and maybe automatically delete it if the category isn't changed within two weeks or something...?
The thing I suggested? As far as I know, they don't have anything like that D: I was just thinking it'd be nice if they did. Although I was assuming the thing you posted that got deleted was recent, so... maybe they did add something? :P I don't know--fortunately, my stuff hasn't been flagged. Of course, I have no watchers, so who knows? I might get flagged if I did, haha
