See, the problem with these reaction buttons is: I agree with your analysis of accountability, but I disagree with blowing up the moon, so I am not sure which button to press.
I guess it means:
“If enough people click this flag, the post will be buried”. In the past, the
“bury-flag” (or one of the “bury-flags”?) was named “troll”. Calling a
contributor a troll, seems to be considered to be too much of a punishment now—so this flag has been replaced by
a flag with a name that sounds less punitive. This flag replacement lowers the
threshold for people to click the “bury-flag”—so it can
be expected that “big punishments”, the burying of a post, will happen more in
the future. However, “small punishments”, calling someone a troll, will be a
thing of the past.
(Edited because of Thierry’s
post below. If the admins can’t take away the burying behavior from a flag,
they can still decide not to use a flag with such behavior.)

The Reactions are fluff. I don’t use them consistently, and rarely pay attention to them. But I just discovered what the “Quote” button does, and will definitely use that in future.
