A flush in the middle of the toilet-sitting process in order to reduce the aroma...usually performed on a "foreign throne" as a courtesy to the owner of said throne... in other words, to be polite and not stink up the host's crapper too much.
I gave a courtesy flush at the Smith's party because I didn't want to kill the next person to use the bathroom.

When you're using a public restroom and your shit smells so bad you flush it as soon as possible so as not to make everyone else in the restroom puke.
Hey, how about a courtesy flush?

Flushing the toilet at the exact moment of a smelly bowel movement hitting the water as to minimize lingering oders that may eminate off the perpatrating poo. Keeping the bowl poo free will keep the bathroom odor to a minimum.

When you're in a public restroom, going number 2, flushing the toilet while you're still using it to lessen the odor and as a neighborly gesture.
Yo dude, give me a courtesy flush........you're making this bathroom rank.

1. Flushing the toilette more than once and ASAP to reduce the unpleasant scent of your own turd(s).

2. Something you had better do when you are in jail or prison, so your cellmate(s) don't/doesn't give you a beatdown. LOL!

3. If it smells bad to you, how much worse will it smell to the other person if you don't have the common sense, or the decency to do a courtesy flush.
Redneck/Jail/Prison definitions:

EX: Dude! Could you at LEAST do a courtesy flush!?!?!?!?

EX 2: If you don't do a courtesy flush you'll be getting a blanket party tonight!

Ex 3: If you don't want a swirly. gimme a courtesy flush over there.

This type of courtesy flush is usually performed at home. It's showing courtesy to your family by not leaving any fecal remains in the toilet after you have taken a shit.

A courtesy flush should be performed after the initial flush if there is fecal matter still left in the toilet, or there are skid marks left on the bowl. Repeat as necessary.
I went into the bathroom after my grandmother, and she never courtesy flushed. Infact, it seems like she never flushed at all.
