Have you ever encouraged a flame war by giving lurve?

Never involved in a flame war.

No. Not sure how you would do this, anyway.

I can only imagine this happening if posts meant as an insult are given multiple lurve, but even then it depends on the person on the receiving end giving a right royal shit what morons on the internet think about them.
Can’t be flamed if you’re a cool bean.

No. If anything, I would GA the calm and collected jellies. I don’t think flames are ever worthy of any notice.

No, I don’t like them.

No. I give lurve sparingly to those truly deserving.

There’s an ‘ol chap here who has complained many times about not receiving lurve so I make sure I don’t give it to him.

Does that count?

I don’t know how it will work and no I haven’t and won’t do that ever!!!

@ everyone saying they don’t know how it would work
I’m pretty sure it means that when someone is throwing around mean or terrible comments, you give them lurve as a way to “egg them on”, because if they are receiving lurve for their rude answers (getting a “great answer”) they think that’s acceptable/ they are in the right so they continue to act that way.

I’m probably guilty of doing this. Sometimes the comments are on point, man.

But I’ve also given out lurve to both sides of a flame war too. Is that better or just downright confusing?

Wait…what exactly constitutes a flame war exactly?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@raum More than one personal attacks.

raum's avatar

What if it’s heated but not personal?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@raum Use ones discretion.

SergeantQueen's avatar

@raum A flame war is a type of heated debate. One that usually might include insults, but could just be people non-stop arguing and going absolutely nowhere.

I just gave @marina lurve… is that a flame war instigation?
