Topic tags/keywords: question

OK, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, my elevator doesn’t go all the way to the top, I’m a few french fries short of a happy meal and I’m a few clowns short of a circus but did I miss something?

What is the purpose of the “Flag” link in each LJ’s response to a topic. It is located just under your avatar and the post #/post time?

Just curious. I’m afraid to click it- don’t want to offend anyone.

Thanks, Rick

After all that’s happened here, this is probably a good idea.

Roger- I think it all depends whether or not they use a wet noodle ;^)

i imagine it is for the wardens
to help them spot comments quicker
without randomly surfing
all the posts looking for them

i did click it once
you get 3 choises
(won’t go there again)
there was no undo
to go back out
once clicked
it is on

I think anyone who puts 4 metaphors in a single sentence should be flagged.

Thanks, everyone, for the explanation. I haven’t been paying very close attention lately so I probably missed the addition/explanation when it occurred.

David, GMman- glad I didn’t click it to have a “just see what’ll happen” moment!

FYI:
I just hit the flag button to see what would happen.
It changed all the text in the post to semaphore !!!!
