The Bavli, M'gila 14 says:

שאין אומרים הלל על נס שבחוצה לארץ
We do not praise a flag that is outside of Israel.

Should we non-Israelis flag posts on Mi Yodeya?

This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.


They may flag, but in order not to praise it the mods will never mark such a flag as helpful.

    That's why mods have access to users' location information! Now it all makes sense. +1.

    And for this reason, plus lifnei iver, users should not tell us from where they flag so that we do not have to decline those flags. Mar 2 '14 at 4:29

    I forgot it was Purim Torah and nearly dug a hole to Israel after seeing the meta front page.

    @TimPost, in case you're wondering, a more usual translation of the Hebrew in the question is "we do not say the halel (praise) prayer for a miracle [that took place] outside of Israel". The same word in Hebrew can mean "miracle" and "flag".
