So my question is: Why did a moderator dispute my flag when another (or the same) had the post deleted?

Your flag was automatically dismissed as a result of that question's trip through the Low Quality review queue. Info on that process is on meta.stackexchange.com.

    A flag can only be dismissed once, a mod can mark helpful or declined; or the review queue can automatically mark it helpful, disputed, or declined.
