I was talking about the flag. The new owner of the site I'm at didn't have his flag on right away. When I asked him how come he didn't have the admin icon he turned it on and said he didn't want people to think he didn't have admin powers.
There's an ignore feature there as well. When he had his flag turned off the manage ignore button was there on his profile. Once he had it up the feature disappeared. It appears that even admins can be ignored so long as they don't have their flag up. Seems to serve as an ignore shield as well as a status badge.
