What do you consider to be flaming?

I think of it as being outright rude and hurtful, unintentional or intentional.

I would see it as excessive and needless abuse that is simply attempting to gain the attention of staff members. Those kind of people seem to get some kind of kick out of being banned but people are into all kinds of weird stuff these days, look at Pokemon.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




Flaming, also known as bashing, is hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users. Flaming usually occurs in the social context of an Internet forum, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), Usenet, by e-mail, game servers such as Xbox Live or Playstation Network, and on video-sharing websites. It is frequently the result of the discussion of heated real-world issues such as politics, sports, religion, and philosophy, or of issues that polarise subpopulations, but can also be provoked by seemingly trivial differences.

Deliberate flaming, as opposed to flaming as a result of emotional discussions, is carried out by individuals known as flamers, who are specifically motivated to incite flaming. These users specialize in flaming and target specific aspects of a controversial conversation, and are usually more subtle than their counterparts. Their counterparts are known as trolls who are less "professional" and write obvious and blunt remarks to incite a flame war, as opposed to the more subtle, yet precise flamers.[1] Some websites even cater for flamers and trolls, by allowing them a free environment, such as Flame-Wars forum.[2]

I try not to call something flaming just because it is the result of a heated argument. If someone is in the middle of an argument and calls the other person stupid or ignorant or something I tend to let that slide given that an attack on the person's intellectual capacity in an argument really isn't out of place.

If it's a negative comment that's "out of place" / just plain hateful/unecessary that's when I generally draw the line and define something as flaming.

Here is what an encyclopedia/dictionary about the internet may say about flaming:
"Flaming; see 4chan"
