There have been some compelling arguments against the (mis)use of  
flags and they've won me over.  Was it the poor wording of my motion  
that made it sound like it was "change for changes sake"?  I see it  
as addressing an international issue.  And very easily, I might add,  
to uncheck a box and have it done.

I don't understand why this can't be discussed in the mailing list.  
Putting it off until a meeting may be fine, but if we can't discuss  
something this simple on the list, then we're true bureaucrats ;-)

Are these tickets not being cc:'d to the mailing list?
