Been alot of flaming going on lately. While one has to expect a certain amount on any site, it seems that lately it has increased here. Nothing wrong with a good ole flame war now and then, however, please note the following suggested guidelines:

1. Always try to use porpre sepllign. I can aslo suffer from this problem, but it gets so frustrating when one is soooo into your bashing thread that they have to stop, look, listen, and try to figure out what word you meant to use. This could take away from your whole flame, and you would lose some of that incindiary rush already instilled up until the reader got confused.

2. Sentence Structure would help. I mean, it is hard to follow a flame that is 105 lines long with no punctuation, paragraphs, capital letters, or sometimes ALL capital letters.

THIS IS ROUGH READING AND IT CAN MAKE ONES EYES BUG OUT LIKE A FROG IN A BLENDER SPEAKING OF BLENDERS ANYONE ELSE GOT A VITAMIX CAUSE I LOVE IT FOR MY PROTEIN SHAKES AND SPEAKING OF SHAKING WAS THAT LAST HURRICANE REALLY !&% MILE AN HOUR WINDS CAUSE THAT WOULD SEEM TO SHAKE A BUILDING AND WHILE I AM BUILDING MY NEXT BIKE I HOPE I CAN FLAME SOMEONE.

As such, toss in an opneing sentence... set your reader up on a tee for the "Whaaaack." Then, perhaps saunter over into a couple filler sentences, expounding a little on the logic and the focus of your flame. Then, why not wrap it up with a concluding sentence and move forward with some transitional paragraphs with their own opening and closing sentences?

3. Flaming is like a game of chess. This means two things. First, Bear can beat you if you get distracted and let him make one friggin move that puts you into a two move checkmate. Second, the Queen is the most powerful piece in the game. NEVER mess to much with the women here! They are sincere, or divas, or ordinary, or trollops, or whatever but they are our "Queens".

We may get frustrated with them sometimes and toss them a little flack, but they are OUR queens, and we rally around them castle our pieces in offensive mode and have been known to attack on their behalf.

However, do not so much worry about the guys. The women do NOT need our protection. Remember, "Hell hat no wrath like a woman born!" Or was that scorned? Horned? well.... something.

4. Play with Fire, you might get burnt. Combustability goes two ways. You can light a fire under someone with a good, well placed and executed flame. But, you are just as tasty a pyro subject for someone else. Fire fights fire and suddenly, it may get a bit hot under your seat. For this I recommend Asbestos Underwear and Fire Retardant Seat Covers.

But of course, if you can sling some fiery words, you best have the fortitude to recieve some as well. No one likes a whiner that starts a ball of shiiiiite and then runs like a little girl when it c omes back at them.

Thus, take what you have c oming back at you. Have a nice Martini or something .... count to infinity and when you are done with all that. Come back a new, resilient, flamable person again.

This has been a public service announcement, brought to you by the letter "F".

Most forums I belong to have "sticky" threads. This piece by AJ belongs in most.

I moderate another (bike oriented) board that has a "let the kids fight it out amongst themselves" policy where the moderation occasionally consists of moving offensive language threads to a forum topic section called "Joe Momma" where anything goes.

and what board is that?
