Folks, there’s some discussion going on over an idea to add an unkind flag to Lobsters. The exact verbiage behind the tag is unclear.

As a quick poll–pretending the flag might get implemented–would folks mind either suggesting what it could mean, in sentence length? Alternately, if somebody posts a definition you like, upvote their approach.

Replies about how this is a bad idea I consider off-topic. Please only reply in the form of a blurb you’d expect to describe the flag.

Thank you!

      I assume sarcastic “descriptions” that are intended to make the flag seem like a bad idea are also off-topic?

        Either that or troll seems to fit the bill.
