I don't know of this feature if there is one. If there is no feature like this is there any way to implement it? I feel as though flagging anonymously could lead to flag manipulation (may already be the case tbh) and can veer the forum wide discussion certain ways at certain times. I personally have a nagging feeling that this might be the case where certain topics are flagged excessively in order to reach the front page. I could be wrong though.

I personally think it is only my business who I give a flag and/or star to.

And you know this how? I never said that was definitely the case and even if it's not I don't think it's a bad idea to have this feature anyways.

Why? I'm not saying you're wrong for believing that I'm just curious as to why you feel that way.

Because it's paranoid.
It is a bad idea. Nobody cares who flags what and if you want them to know tell them. But I don't want my s&f-privacy taken away just because you're paranoid.

Because it allows people to view who or what you happen to flag and creates another opportunity for people to ignore the topic and attack the member, 'Ohhhhhh, you always flag So-And-So, you must be a shill for them!'

That kinda crap.

Great Idea !!!

It will add to all the chaos that already exists.

Think of the backslapping and ad-homs it will create.

Bad idea - on multiple levels.

I see from your avatar that you've been a member for less than 2 months. I think once you've been around here as a contributing member for a little longer you'll see what I mean.

But keep those cards & letters coming...

Sounds like someone is interested in bullying people to me

Yeah, can't we all just accept that that happens and move on?

OP, I agree with the others that it's a terrible idea. It just opens up a way for members to be singled out and harassed etc.

You're problem might be how you navigate the site? Try "recent", "new" or "myATS" & you should be a lot happier.

Because the paranoid people do not think they are paranoid, they think they are 'investigating'.
