It could be because some threads, such as the Mustang Conspiracy one, are highlighted in a u2u to many members.
If i remember rightly the u2u i got said that the message had been sent to just over 13,000 members who had been on ATS over the past 30 days.
So if just a fraction of those 13,000 click on the link and flag it, even few hundred flags is not a lot.
No conspiracy here, just a little help from a mass u2u....and rightly so.
