No reads???? There are always reads, unless you just sat down and this is your first hand or orbit. They might be simple reads, like player x just played the last 4 hands, or player y hasn't played in 2 orbits. But they are all we have and would add something to the discussion.
However this is cheap Omaha, and I see your point about both coming along regardless of what you do, in which case flatting is the definite best answer. There will be no isolation happening here, both the villains made up their minds they want to see a flop. I reject the bloated pot notion in this case.
Not only that, but there is the notion of controlling the table dynamics, more doable in Omaha and definitely more doable in Omaha 6 max than in HE. Controlling the table dynamics will be mostly a matter of setting the tempo of the game, and the overall aggressiveness at the table. Flatting here helps control that aggressiveness factor. From a tourney POV this would be desirable, whereas listening to you ring guys, I get the feeling you would rather foster a wild west approach believing you have a much better post flop game.
I sort of hate bringing in any mention of tourney's here, being this is a ring game and all, but still, the tools of the game are similar enough.
