The definition of 'Flaming'

What is it? I seriously don't understand what is considered flaming and what isn't. Are all negative posts flaming? Are all childish acts flaming? Sarcasm? Well what is 'flaming'? Short replies or 1000 word essays are welcome.

Thanks in advance for replying and the clarification.

it's basically just attacking someone, if you want to deconstruct what someone says in a civil manner thats one thing, but outright attacks against them aren't tolerated, sarcasm is just fine, but different mods react different to different things of course, so wait for aragorn to give his take, 'til then

"I think that barbs are fun"

FLAME: "You would think that because you're an idiot, idiot. Now get in the kitchen and make me some stupid pie, stupid"

flaming is something you write, that if directed at you would make you clench your teeth, slam your keyboard, throw things at your monitar, etc.

I would say Flaming is basically resorting to mud flinging/name calling instead of making rational argument.

Flaming :

1. Any post by Ash (just kidding)

In short any post meant to mock someone else, make fun of or verbally abuse another poster.
