Hello Everyone

This is a post about how flaming hurts, and how people really can get affected by flaming, and other insults like it

First off, what is flaming? flaming is lashing out at people, insulting them repeatedly, and just being extremely negative in a non-constructive way

Secondly, what kinds of flaming are there? calling someone a n00b/noob/noobie is flaming, general insulting is flaming, having a negative opinion, and being VERY negative about it is flaming.

How can we respond when we are flamed? we can ignore it, send a comment/PM to them, but DO NOT flame back, that is just as bad.

How can we stop flaming? we can stop ourselves from flaming, to set an example, we can show people this blog about how flaming can really hurt

this is a completely hypothetical story, but it happens way to much:

One day Tom was walking home from school, he was bullied that day, and was in a very sad mood. He was looking forward to checking PMC, because he was a new member, and he posted his first project! once he made it home, he ran to his computer, pulled it up, and saw that he had a comment! he opened it as fast as he could, and as he read it, tears started to roll down his face, the comment read:

YOU N00B! this project @#$%^& why did you post this heap of @J#$%^& on this site, this stinks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tom was so shaken, all he could do was lay on his bed, quivering with sorrow.

probably you have seen this, it happens way to often on PMC, even though it's against the rules, so when you are flamed at/seen flaming, you can take the suggestions above, and use them against flaming.

To sum it all up, flaming is being extremely negative in a non-constructive way, its also insulting repeatedly, do not flame back at a flamer.

People are always flaming on me. But n00b is offensive?! When I first joined Minecraft people were greeted by being called a noob by everyone on the server. It was considered nice back in ye olden days.

I really hate it when people flame at me. So I tell them that they shouldn't flame. and they say absoloutely Nothing, nothing at all. Like maybe I scared them or something...? Eh atleast that's a good thing. and I like most of the new people's project. Because there normally really good for there standard. and even if I don't like i don't say anything.

People have to realise that criticism or negative feedback ISN'T flaming. Don't be that guy who always assumes that "If you don't love what I do, you're stupid and just hate me".

I see it has already happened in one of the comments. I'm not necessarily saying YOU specifically, but anyone. If someone has adverse views to whatever you have written, and expresses these opinions in a comment, it's not "flaming". It's not being rude, it's called having an opinion.

Problem is, if you're posting something that isn't "OMG DIS PROJEKT BE DA BEST DIAMOND SUB" it;s flaming. Generally if something is really low quality, I'll tell the person. It may be harsh, but I'm just trying to help.

And please, don't use hashtags for god's sake.

I understand not flaming and all that, I honestly do. And I try not to flame myself, but I DO try to criticize in order to help people develop their skills a bit more. However, 99.9% of the population sees this as flaming and it gets to the point where I post little, unhelpful, one-liners like "Work on your grammar" because I get sick of being attacked for trying to help. So far this hasn't happened here but I WANT to post in-depth criticism instead of one liners. People tend to have this feeling of: If you can't say something nice... And it's not about me trying to be a jerk, it's about legit concerns. I've seen so many skins on here that need work and shading, but the comments are filled with "Good job! Looks great!"

In short, flaming is not ok, but we shouldn't close people off for criticism just because it's not the positive feedback that one wants.

I agree, cyber bullying is the most hurtful bullying, because if your a kid like me, you go on the internet to get away from hate and connect with people who have the same interests! Anti-Bullies Unite!

This dos not count as cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is when like people get arrested for it and stuff (AKA Cyberstalking) and its like actually something. This is just people being rude on interwebs which I quiet enjoy myself

Cyber bullying is any form of comment or work against someone with hurtful intent. You do not need to be arrested to be a cyberbully. One hateful comment does not really constitute bullying, but persistence in the hate by the same person is a form of bullying. If you want to learn more, look the term up.

All these little kids like you making these blogs about how the world isn't unfair and crying because someone called them something. You need to calm down and take a few breaths and not write a flipping blog on it.

Having a negative opinion isn't flaming. If someone's acting like one, neither is calling them a noob. Any flaming that comes from such a saying is borne from the expletives that must have followed. nnWhy is this on the pop reel, anyways?

flaming is insulting, and what you are doing is flaming my post, it was on the pop reel because a lot of people read/diamonded on it in a short period of time, and please, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it

Flaming equals insulting. nnInsulting does not equal flaming. nnCriticizing does not equal insulting.nnInsulting equals criticizing. nnI am the second, I am the third. Review both those points for an answer to your last quip.
