英会話ブログ その645     Internet Flaming & Trolling (1)

2015/06/25

Even a casual user of the internet has run across extremely personal attacks by one person to another.

Usually, this happens in any forum where people are free to post ideas, opinions or just something that they like.

According to the internets Urban Dictionary, Flaming is an online argument that becomes nasty or derisive, and in which insulting another party becomes more important than the merits of one side of the arguments or the other.

Flaming is almost as old as the internet itself, appearing on BBs (Bulletin Board) or discussion groups as early as the 1980s.                                          (G.K)
