Lately I seem to be disagreeing with a lot of answer flags like this one, where one or more users think a post is either "Not an answer" or "Very low quality".
Personally, I only tend to downvote posts that don't remotely address the question, or which I think are actually wrong. And they have to be really bad before I think about "flagging".
My general position is good answers get upvoted. Indifferent or irrelevant answers should be easily identified by the fact that they don't get upvoted.
I admit I'm more likely to downvote poor quality answers to "redress the balance" if I disagree with others who thought they were good enough to be upvoted. But that's about as far as I usually go.
It's mainly when I'm dealing with the Review Queue that this becomes an issue for me (as I'm not a mod, that's the only way I know what others are flagging). My question/point for discussion is...
Does the Review Queue encourage harsher judgements? If so, is this a good, bad, or neutral effect?
