A flame war is a heated argument between two individuals, that results in those involved posting personal attacks on each other during or instead of debating the topic at hand.
Most forums have rules that forbid flaming. This is because the quality of conversation on a forum can be seriously degraded by a flame war. Topics can be "hijacked" by two people who would rather flame each other than discuss the subject of the thread.
Some websites encourage flaming for the purpose of entertainment. One such website is www.flamewarforum.com.
I can't come to work today because i'm having a flame war on www.flamewarforum.com.
