I'm still not convinced. I think most people would just ignore any flags
they don't like. It's only software, not a human being waving it in
their face.

As I said before, sporting events like the Olympics use flags all the
time. I don't see why we can't do the same.

I say we remove the really problematic ones, like China & Taiwan, ship
it, and see how many people get offended and complain.
