The Flag button is not censorship and it cannot be manipulated by angry mobs. Political dissent? Incendiary opinions? Just plain crazy? Bring it on.
Translation: The Flag button is censorship, and it can be maniputated by angry mobs.
... When a person visiting a blog clicks the "Flag?" button in the Blogger Navbar, it means they believe the content of the blog may be potentially offensive or illegal. We track the number of times a blog has been flagged as objectionable and use this information to determine what action is needed. This feature allows the blogging community as a whole to identify content they deem objectionable. Have you read The Wisdom of Crowds? It's sort of like that.
You mean, like the wisdom of the crowds that elected He Who Must Not Be Named president twice? Yeah, I trust them loads.
Note: users may click the "Unflag" button if they change their mind.
So, readers, if you find a page objectionable, keep going back repeatedly until you no longer find it offensive.
Can I flag the Fox News site as objectionable?
