Could I add a section about the consequences of Flame Wars?
Do you think this should be a stub anymore?
Flame wars are not bullying
- To quote Wikipedia (emphasis mine), "Flaming is a hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users". Arguing and flaming are not the same thing. To quote the article, "A flame war is an unfriendly argument". Arguing is where two users disagree and try to convince others to agree with them. Flaming is when people get rude and start attacking each other.

There's a section for common phrases involving flame wars. I've never heard people use these ever, even though I've seen quite a bit of flame wars. Is that section really necessary?

- I haven't necessarily seem those in context with actual flame wars, but they are terms that I've heard in real life related to this topic (like "fanning the flames"). Maybe we should keep it in there as they are pretty self explanatory (although references would be nice...)
