User reviews
I love the idea of sticking it to "Big Brother" but Flagger breaks some websites. The pages won't load or videos wont play. The only fix is to disable flagger entirely. An option to disable for specific websites. preferably via 1 click or quick navigation in the flagger drop-down menu. Similar to how Adblock gives us the "don't run on this site" option.

I really like the idea, considering I say hello to them on FB by using flagged words. However, I agree with both users here in that we need to be able to turn it off. I could no longer access my yahoo e-mail (snicker- still makes me laugh) But e-mail is necessary unfortunately.
