It’s not totally flat. Flat where appropriate. Documents should be flat. Shadows are for things that appear on top of other things. There’s a message on the left that says, “Hi there! Can I share a cool thing I’m working on with you?” This has a shadow, because it appears on top of the document.

The "Posts" nav item has a dropdown that overlays the document and is still completely flat.

The dropdown has a shadow for me with Chrome (and also a sound effect).
