You've Been Flagged....

What the hell is that little "FLAG" button in the right hand corner of every Blogger page now, and am I the last one to notice it there?! You can now "FLAG" other people's sites for content?!

Here's now-Google-owned Blogger's explanation:

"Here's How It Works:

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."

So basically people with opposite political views can go on each other's sites and flag each other? I don't know why but I am incredibly annoyed by this...
