holy war

An ongoing dialog on an Internet newsgroup about some controversial subject. See flame.



flame

To communicate emotionally via electronic means. Just as people might argue what is polite behavior and what is not, whether an email message or blog post is flaming or not is also in the eye of the beholder. Vulgar cursing would definitely be flaming, however. See netiquette, Internet troll, flame war and holy war.
