    flaming; adjective

    To verbally abuse someone online for no apparent reason.
    To insult annoyingly without fear of retaliation.

    Example;

    I tried to help someone, but misquoted a source, and this idiot flamed me, saying I was nothing but the afterbirth from a platypus.

    It means tempers post hurtful stuff about each other, for example:
    Person1:Hey person2! Stop behaving like an idiot or moron!
    Person2:Shut the **** up noob!
    and the process continues till the mods either warn them or remove those posts. [​IMG]

    Both of them, as long as they post hurtful comments. [​IMG]
    EDIT: This will answer your question.

    Likely a first couple offences would net you a warning depending on the severity. If you keep it up it will likely end in you getting banned.

    no just warnings(or nothing) but sometime ban if the flame was too big to handle by the fire fighters

    You will no longer have access to that account. If it is just a suspension it lasts for x amount of time and then you can come back and post and hope you have changed your ways. If you are banned then your account is lost forever.

    no that's against the rules as well. if u make a new account, it will immediately be banned, and u will be ip banned.

    jeez y r u so worried? r u plannin to break the rules in a major way or something? (i suggest distribute as much pr0n as u can before u go down [​IMG])

    If you get IP banned, then you won't be able to register here with your current PC set-up at all!
