I would think it is "flame" as in to "burn" someone with "scorching" rhetoric.

No clue for sure.. but if I had to guess.. I would guess it could have come from the classic "roast" where one person would be set in front of his peers who would throw insults at him.. all in good fun of course

Or it could be because most people who flame are trying to get the other person "fired up" and other people come in throwing jabs that kind of just "fan the flames" of the debate/argument that is already going on..

No definites however

Default My thanks !

Matanic here,


Thank you guys, very well done! I completely get it now, <i guess we are all afforded our little moments huh?>
I appreciate not being sorta made fun of for asking a question, but i guess thats what the other board is for, and this one is for honest questions and answers haha.

Thanks again =D
