Flags about wrong keywords - whose responsibility is it


posted on 21st of october, 2012

Just a general idea about flags for wrong keywords...I have no beef with self policing policies but I do ask a question...whose resposibility should it be for the results of these flags...I will elaborate...I have been flagged twice...once for the word CRAPS in relation to the dice game that is played in all casinos...and again, for the word CLOTHESLINE, in relation to a typical spare in ten pin bowling.

A quick google or wiki will show that both terms are correctly used for the particular public that may be searching for those images.

The particular question is...why should it be my responsibility to show that I have used it correctly...shouldn´t it be the responsibility of the self appointed DISTRICT ATTORNEY to show that it is a legitimate flag and not of the accused to...

Thanks all for chipping in...I am not, in the least, miffed by the flagging. It just seems an exercise in futility and a waste of time for all. The small point I was trying to make was that the onus of the responsibility should be on the FLAGGER and not on the FLAGGEE, (smile..to use some legalese). Minimum, I would expect, a self-respecting FLAGGER to google...ten pin bowling, clothesline...and see what comes up.

The 10-pin: For right-handed bowlers, the 10-pin is a smaller target than any other single pin spare. ... The Clothesline: This is even more difficult than it looks.

That is the #1 result in google. Less time than typing up the flag. Downside..he, the FLAGGER, does not get any blog time or even his TWO CENTS...do me a favour...TWO CENTS.

I rest my case. Maybe the gentleman would contribute as to why he invests his time in this waste of time instead of taking and uploading pictures...
