So, this is an experiment. I’m going to introduce a special rule for commenting on the thread below. There’ll be no sanctions for those breaking them (unless you’re really bad!!), but I will take those comments off when I get back into Slugger Central later on today.
The rule is you can only say what you honestly think/feel about the flag above. I want you to stick to its personal meaning for you, in the here and now. So, please, no commenting on anyone else’s contribution, we can open a secondary thread for that once we have a quorum to work with.
Let’s see what, if anything, happens?
