Okay, so I am in a class that teaches "Effective Business English"
so I am reading the book, and its talking about how to send formal emails, and the following sentence is in the book:

"In all but the most casual notes you need to observe the principles of good writing to create an appropriate tone. Be careful not to "flame" (express a strong opinion or criticism)....."

It made me think of UG. And also made me think of what kind of idiot would do that in a business email.
example:
To: (boss's name)
blah blah blah I have this fantastic new product idea, it will make this company millions, U b3TTer lis7en u n00b!!!!!11111

No, it's just saying not to exaggerate or make your argument offensive.

Yeah I know but that's the way it reads if you don't already know what a "flame" is.

I like that they're actually having to tell you not to be rude and abusive in e-mails.

l33tsp34k isn't flaming...
flaming is like this:
"you f-ing moron! go f yer momma f-ing bitch!
yours sincerely,
..."
A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers are not gay. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who is.

I didn't really find this funny.

All words have origins, you know.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
