Disclaimer: I conferred with Eutychus before starting this thread, because I wasn’t sure where it belonged. While my intent is to learn to flame, I also want this thread to be a lot of fun, and as funny as possible. Euty said to start it here, and see what happens.
I want to learn to flame. My flaming skills don’t get much better than “you suck!” On a particularly testy day, I may be able to manage a “you REALLY suck, you big doodyhead!”
This is, of course, terminally lame. For all the writing I do, here and IRL, you’d think I’d have learned how to say “you suck” in a much more creative way.
I want you to teach me how to flame. Teach me how to toast some serious booty. From the tiny blaze of a matchhead to the full-out explosion of a nuclear warhead, teach me how to say “you suck” in some truly memorable ways.
Now, there are a few rules we’ll have to follow, since this is MPSIMS:
I am not looking to flame anyone or anything in particular–yet. For the duration of my training, please stick to the generic “you.” Gender is up to you.
Don’t give me flames to use. I want to learn to craft my own.
Curse words are acceptible, but unless Euty says it’s okay (I forgot to ask), perhaps you should edit them. Something along the lines of “s***” instead of “shit.” Most likely, I’ll know what you mean.
Be funny, and have fun. I want others to learn from this as well.
I’m ready to start learning. Anyone care to teach me? Please?
