On other Q&A sites, I sometimes "meta-flag" posts; that is, I will flag a post that might not have anything obviously wrong with it in order to point out questionable activity by the post's author or to indicate that the post might be part of a pattern.

In order to facilitate this, it is necessary for me to be able to specify a custom reason (via free-form text input) why I am flagging a post.

Askbot does not currently have this feature, however.

We have this feature in the development branch, it is not complete yet. Originally it was implemented as "reject reason" for moderation, but will be changed to flagging.
