Being someone who does not engage in PvP (last time I did any PvP activity was Winter Veil, and I never finished the PvP achievement because I got bored with it), I had to look up blue-flagging.Having looked it up, I will admit that there was one time where I did technically blue-flag someone. I was in a group getting ready to run Culling of Stratholme, and the group was still gathering (this was pre-Dungeon Finder). On the way to the portal, I noticed that one of the group members was flagged and that they got killed. When I arrived, I found a Horde group that I assume was also gathering. A Protection Warrior and a clothie (I think it was a mage). They were corpse camping the member of my group. So I ran over to the clothie, popped all my trinkets and cooldowns, blue-flagged, and burst him down. Then I occupied the attention of the Warrior in an epic Protection vs. Blood DK duel (also known as two immovable objects colliding) until the camped party member respawned and the rest of my party arrived, at which point the Warrior was beaten into the ground and my party took the Caverns of Time taxi before the rest of the Horde group could arrive.What I did was blue-flagging, but in my personal opinion it's in a little more of a gray area than what people traditionally think when they think blue-flagging. I guess it's a question of whether blue-flagging to stop someone from corpse-camping is acceptable. Basically whether two wrongs make a right.
