Definition of FLAMING....No Flaming on the Forums

Recommended Posts

Here's a good definition of FLAMING and TROLLING....please read this.

We do not want any Flaming or Trolling on this site.

In short, here are the defintions, but please read the article in the link above.

Flaming is the act of posting a comment or article in an open publishing forum that is intended to be hostile and insulting. The person who participates in flaming is termed a flamer. Each hostile comment or article is described as a flame (Wikipedia, 2005a). Flamebaiting is the act of posting a comment or article in an open publishing forum that is likely to start flaming or a flamewar; a series of flaming messages. Flamebaiting is not directly hostile or insulting; rather it is a passive-aggressive method in order to start flaming. The person who participates in flamebaiting is referred to as a baiter (Wikipedia, 2005b).

Trolling is the act of posting a comment or article in an open publishing forum that is intended to provoke and disrupt the discussion of users by producing a large volume of frivolous responses (Bond, 1999). The content of such a post may consist of a foolish contradiction of common knowledge, a deliberately offensive insult to the readers or a broad request for trivial follow-up postings (Bond, 1999). The person who participates in trolling is termed a troll.

PLEASE THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE POSTING AND WHAT THE REASON IS BEHIND YOUR POST. If it's anything like Flaming and Trolling, DON'T POST IT.
