How To Be A Flamer

[This is a submission to BlueJar’s Group Writing Project with prize money and banner to boot. This post was written tongue in cheek, there is no way I’m encouraging you to do it.]

I’ve subscribed to feeds from blogs that tell us how to be a better blogger, commentor, etc. Now, I’d like to start off with something that’s everyone, practically anyone, can be capable of, how to be a flamer.

  1. Post random comments on a post. Say that the post is lousy. Just one short sentence like “Horribly written.”
  2. Next, say that the blogger has “an ugly face”.
  3. To enhance the flame’s effects, add in “My grandmother can write better than you.”
  4. In addition, you can add in “Stop whining about the Odex/Singnet/Starhub/NSF/career/job/whatever the topic is about. Wake up and quit blogging.”
  5. Furthermore, you can also include “It’s you and your attitude, my dear.”

It’s very easy to be a flamer because you don’t have to say anything much about the post. Just start a fire and see where it leads to. Oh, not to forget, do the same to the commentors before and after you too.

    LOL

    If one is a “profesional” flamer (which anyway is not as described in wikipedia), (s)he`ll never start to flame a blog unrelated to the post subject and definately not “puking” on blogger.

    Well, of course, except if blogger and readers of his blog are actualy friends of yours. Else, one will be taken as troll – comments deleted, reported as spamer, baned etc..

    The difference between a flamer and a “troll” is same as between a hacker and a cracker …

    I just land on this blog and I think is amazing. Great. The most I have enjoyed the “about page” which is very intersting and full of nice stuff(http://five4all.com.img/itlife.jpg).
    Now really, you should not put there so many real valuable informations ..

    @jerk
    Perhaps another blog with a more brilliant topic should entice you to stay reading longer. You shouldn’t even have read this in the first place.
