I joined long before the flagging and atars were here. Had to wonder if it's what you said and it's just a way to keep track of our opinions, if
that's what you meant? I think it is, since it's a darn good idea!
Personally I'm not a fan of flagging, I noticed how a thread might have been created with an attention grabbing headline , in order to give the OP.
flags. It appears some people just need attention. " flag me".
I'm being accusatory there.
They get flagged simply because they've built up an image here of being some sort of specialist in the subject matter. They see their avatar and flag
Some people flag on impulse without having read the whole thread. I've done that myself and had to Unflag.
Not sure if you can Unflag now though. Not been here in awhile. Things change.
At any rate, yes it can affect whether you want to flag or not.
