How to correctly handle someone flagging own posts for deletion

I have one user who wanted to delete posts with old offers/requests for help that were no longer relevant. The only way I could thing of for them to do that was flag the relevant posts for us to handle.

Am I correct in thinking that the only way to handle these flags with out penalising the user (either on flag quality or post quality metrics) is by doing “Ignore + delete”?

Then there’s the problem of the user flagging so many of these posts that they overflowed their post allowance (because of the associated PMs), but I’m not sure there’s much to be done about that.
