    Is there anyway that USMB could determine the country of origin for each post and post a flag indicating that country in the post's left side information?

    I know that in Fortinet firewalls when you see a list of active sessions, there a flag indicating the country of the remote connection. So it is something that can be determined.

    I suspect that it would be very difficult to do though....

    Just a thought.

    For what purpose, other than for some to single out and harass those from countries outside the USA?

    It seems that you are casting aspersions on the poster who suggested it.

    Seems to me, he is simply motivated by curiosity and the desire to understand how people in different parts of the world view things differently.

    We had it at another board before. Of course it was optional.

    Some boards used to do that; don't know if this particular board's software has the option in its programing or not. It doesn't matter much to me either way. A lot of the advertising software can do it as part of their tailoring code.
