Flaming usually occurs in the social context of a discussion board, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) or even through e-mail. An Internet user typically generates a flame response to other posts or users posting on a site, and is usually not constructive, does not clarify a discussion, and does not persuade others. Sometimes, flamers attempt to assert their authority, or establish a position of superiority over other users. Other times, a flamer is simply an individual who believes he or she carries the only valid opinion. This leads him or her to personally attack those who disagree. Occasionally, flamers wish to upset and offend other members of the forum, in which case they are trolls. Most often however, flames are angry or insulting messages transmitted by people who have strong feelings about a subject.
In a nutshell you may not flame: members or non-members, existing rallies, past rallies and/or their organizers past or present, other Scooter Groups or Scooter websites or their members, owners or moderators!
THE FIRST VIOLATION IS YOUR LAST! YOU WILL BE BANNED! Keep negative statements to yourself! Period. Consider this your only warning.
