- E-go.
- "The other person has undone me! I shall carry my vengance" (or in other words, if they feel offended, they'll squabble back at the thing that's "harming" them).
- For the hell of it.
- That's all they know how to settle with opposing views.
- It's the internet for crying out loud, good mannered discussions are hard to come by here...
- Human nature, naturally, we seem to adore violence and conflict.
- Grammer lack, or, lack of grammer.
- People seem to be real offended being insulting by a complete stranger they don't even know in real life...
- "justice must be carried out! My point must be clear to them! How can they ignore my point, which is by all means the right one!" (or in other words, some are narrowminded, pround, or just plain stubborn, and anything opposite from their point of view means they automatically think the other is insulting them).

Those'r my theories there uh JJJ, but I'm sure a real "flamer" can answer your question, hell, they may make my theories into facts.

Of course I'd retaliate by insulting your whole family!



It doesn't always happen on purpose, you know. People can flame by accident. Or not even mean too, but sound like they are trying too. =/


OHNOES!

I generally place habitual flamers in the same category as people who consider KSing a valid leveling tactic (one order of ban hammer coming up, would you like fries with that?).
The most dangerous thing a GM can do is to play NPC combatants as if they have brains, goals, and the desire to remain alive.
