I am going to lean towards the opposite direction here compared to the other posters... if you feel you have a good subject matter to discuss, then
yes by all means, share... BUT, if you feel that you should be rewarded, then a resounding no.
I would hope that no one makes a post or thread for the sake of being flagged. If you want your ego stroked, there's other places for that.
Besides, what's a flag anyway? How is that a measure of your thread and research? I for one would rather have numerous posts and responses to a
thread of mine... the more posts, the greater the discussion, then apparently the better the thread. I've had threads with little or no flags and
yet would span several pages; likewise, I've had threads with little or no posts, and yet numerous flags.
Then again, I've also always found the moderator applause or member U2Us quite gratifying.
Make your own thread. You are putting your work out there, and for better or worse, you are doing this for everyone.
