Fishy Flag Operation Down But Not Out

The White House appears to have taken down the Flag@Whitehouse.gov e-mail address used to have people report fishy comments by other people about health care. But, the bounce-back when you send an e-mail provides an alternative address, to the White House "reality check" web page:

At the "reality check" web page, people are encouraged to report "myths":

But once landing at the contact form, you are cautioned: "Please refrain from submitting any individual's personal information, including their email address, without their permission."

So the White House still is asking people to report information to it, and if someone just happened to include her neighbor's name and e-mail address, well that would just be an unintended consequence.

So is the White House still running its fishy flag operation? Depends on what the meaning of "flag" is.
