We are, of course, all opposed to the flaming that occurs on other boards. It is however interesting to see how it is done really really well.

Great list, O Bialumnal One. It is complemented quite nicely by this one:http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/flame1.html

The Padre's link was interesting, but Max's link is STUPENDOUS. Go and have a look at the pics and bios of the Flame Warriors.

WE'RE ALL IN THERE!

Oh, man, thanks, CK, for making me go there; last night I decided not to take the time. But they are great! Hey--can I order you a T-shirt? But YOU'll have to tell ME which one--I ain't about to say!

I looked eagerly at "Profundus Maximus"; doesn't fit our Max at all!

Oh, get the picture on "Howlers"! HA!

Ohmigawd: Whether inadvertently or by design, Coffee Klatch prepares the battlefield in her favor by making it soggy with pleasant, but vapid messages - her favorite phrase often being, "thanks for sharing". This renders the battlefield rather slow going for many of the swifter and more powerful Warriors, and if war does break out she will shed her benign facade and strike mired Warriors with great ferocity.

"Netiquette Nazi" made laugh out loud--for a couple of minutes!

Whew, I know an Evil Clown in real life. He is horrible, and it is so much worse because he's in a position that commands respect. [shudder e]

Really? The first time I saw that one, I winced and blushed, since its desciption fitted my Usenet behaviour painfully well.

Fantastic links both.

And to my chagrin, I've discovered that I'm probably closest to Weenie. (Dammit. When oh when will I achieve the zen-like state of the Kung Fu Master?)

Jackie and I just had a lovely phone conversation (ROTFLOFAO), and *we came up with this nowhere near complete list:

The Archivist
Big Cat
Coffee Klatch
Deacon
Fragile Femme
Garble
Grammarian
Issues
Nanny
Nitpick
Lurker
Picador
Propeller Head
Royals
Tiny Yapper

...yet, we categorically deny the assignment of specific *names. (chicken-e)

***********

One of the few we couldn't agree on was who'd be the "Netiquette Nazi".
