It's a glitch that allowed people to keep their flashlights. The reason why you can't keep them is that if a bunch of people used their flashlights in a social area, it would slow down the server due to the high graphic demand for shadows.

Actually, I think dstahl said that that's the reason they are disabled in social areas (even if you currently have one, it won't turn on in social areas).

Not sure why they didn't want us to keep them, though (they only work in missions and on the bridge....places where a few lights won't have much if any effectt).
