If you think a question is generally of bad quality, should you downvote, flag, or both?

| |

Basically, if the post is completely irrelevant, flag it, otherwise if it's just unhelpful or poorly written, consider downvoting it.

When should I vote down?

Use your downvotes whenever you encounter an egregiously sloppy, no-effort-expended post, or an answer that is clearly and perhaps dangerously incorrect.

You have a limited number of votes per day, and answer down-votes cost you a tiny bit of reputation on top of that; use them wisely.

When should I flag?

If anything happens on our site that makes you feel uncomfortable or that, in your opinion, clearly does not belong here, please flag it and bring it to our attention!
