Flame is the internet term for insulting language used in the course of a debate. Flaming is forbidden in many debate forums, but appropriate use of flame is encouraged on the Stardestroyer.net message boards.

Appropriate use

On this forum, it is considered perfectly acceptable to flame people simply for being dishonest or stupid, no matter how polite they are. I am aware that on most forums, stupidity or dishonesty alone are not considered grounds for flaming. However, those forums' rules do not apply here.
- Board rules

An argument must have substance (logic and evidence) as well as insults to be considered valid; arguments that consist of nothing but flame are worthless.

Dismissing an argument or its points simply because it contains flame is grounds for an instant ban from SDN.
