Question: What Is 'Flaming'?
Answer: 'Flaming', or 'to flame', means to attack someone verbally online. Flaming entails insults, bigotry, name-calling, or any outright hostility directed at a specific person. Often, flaming is the result of a heated difference of opinions on a topic, and it has devolved into childish bickering.

There are cases where someone is a repeat flamer: he/she insists on regularly attacking others as a daily habit. If so, we then call that person an Internet troll.

I have seen some of the Ugliest online Behaviour in the past week or so around the web.. Why its allowed anywhere is beyond me.

So i am posting this as a reminder that it wont be tolerated here.
