  flame [at MIT, orig. from the phrase `flaming asshole'] 1. vi. To post
     an email message intended to insult and provoke. 2. vi. To speak
     incessantly and/or rabidly on some relatively uninteresting subject or
     with a patently ridiculous attitude. 3. vt. Either of senses 1 or 2,
     directed with hostility at a particular person or people. 4. n. An
     instance of flaming. When a discussion degenerates into useless
     controversy, one might tell the participants "Now you're just flaming"
     or "Stop all that flamage!" to try to get them to cool down (so to
     speak).
  
     The term may have been independently invented at several different
     places. It has been reported from MIT, Carleton College and RPI (among
     many other places) from as far back as 1969, and from the University of
     Virginia in the early 1960s.
  
     It is possible that the hackish sense of `flame' is much older than
     that. The poet Chaucer was also what passed for a wizard hacker in his
     time; he wrote a treatise on the astrolabe, the most advanced computing
     device of the day. In Chaucer's "Troilus and Cressida", Cressida laments
     her inability to grasp the proof of a particular mathematical theorem;
     her uncle Pandarus then observes that it's called "the fleminge of
     wrecches." This phrase seems to have been intended in context as "that
     which puts the wretches to flight" but was probably just as ambiguous in
     Middle English as "the flaming of wretches" would be today. One suspects
     that Chaucer would feel right at home on Usenet.

  flame
       
           To rant, to speak or write incessantly and/or
          rabidly on some relatively uninteresting subject or with a
          patently ridiculous attitude or with hostility toward a
          particular person or group of people.  "Flame" is used as a
          verb ("Don't flame me for this, but..."), a flame is a single
          flaming message, and "flamage" /flay'm*j/ the content.
       
          Flamage may occur in any medium (e.g. spoken, electronic
          mail, Usenet news, World-Wide Web).  Sometimes a flame
          will be delimited in text by marks such as "...".
       
          The term was probably independently invented at several
          different places.
       
          Mark L. Levinson says, "When I joined the Harvard student
          radio station (WHRB) in 1966, the terms flame and flamer were
          already well established there to refer to impolite ranting
          and to those who performed it.  Communication among the
          students who worked at the station was by means of what today
          you might call a paper-based Usenet group.  Everyone wrote
          comments to one another in a large ledger.  Documentary
          evidence for the early use of flame/flamer is probably still
          there for anyone fanatical enough to research it."
       
          It is reported that "flaming" was in use to mean something
          like "interminably drawn-out semi-serious discussions"
          (late-night bull sessions) at Carleton College during
          1968-1971.
       
          Usenetter Marc Ramsey, who was at WPI from 1972 to 1976,
          says: "I am 99% certain that the use of "flame" originated at
          WPI.  Those who made a nuisance of themselves insisting that
          they needed to use a TTY for "real work" came to be known as
          "flaming asshole lusers".  Other particularly annoying people
          became "flaming asshole ravers", which shortened to "flaming
          ravers", and ultimately "flamers".  I remember someone picking
          up on the Human Torch pun, but I don't think "flame on/off"
          was ever much used at WPI."  See also asbestos.
       
          It is possible that the hackish sense of "flame" is much older
          than that.  The poet Chaucer was also what passed for a wizard
          hacker in his time; he wrote a treatise on the astrolabe, the
          most advanced computing device of the day.  In Chaucer's
          "Troilus and Cressida", Cressida laments her inability to
          grasp the proof of a particular mathematical theorem; her
          uncle Pandarus then observes that it's called "the fleminge of
          wrecches."  This phrase seems to have been intended in context
          as "that which puts the wretches to flight" but was probably
          just as ambiguous in Middle English as "the flaming of
          wretches" would be today.  One suspects that Chaucer would
          feel right at home on Usenet.
