'Netiquette' - and what constitues flaming....

Since there are often misconceptions regarding what might be flaming we thought it would be good to put some examples. I've done an internet search and found a few websites, but to start with flaming includes using behaviour or language which is rude, insulting, patronizing, inflammatory, derogatory, hostile, launching personal attacks, making accusations, and probably MUCH more than I've listed here. At the end of the day - if you wouldn't say it or do it in person, don't say or do it here. If you wouldn't want someone to say it or do it to you, don't say or do it here.

Flaming also goes hand in hand with Internet Trolling (aka trolls)
