I flagged this guy
on the blue but was conflicted.

One the one hand, I flagged b/c the info. is misleading and from a crap publication. I'm not inclined to visit sites that disseminate lots of low quality info. and think mefi would change for the worse if that were more prevalent.
On the other hand, vetting is a nice function for a site full of smart people to perform for the rest of the internet and perhaps for the community.
I guess my overall impression after lurking for a couple years is that there's a little too much crackpot allowed on the blue. I'd be curious to hear if others (dis)agree and if that's an appropriate use of the flag.
