What is a flame?

Postby kcdc » Thu Dec 30, 2010 1:40 pm

First I thought it was someone with a high LSAT score, now where I'm reading it it sounds interchangeable for "troll" (which, I'm guessing, is someone with a fake profile?).

Any other lingo I should be hip to?

Thanks.

A troll is someone who posts a "fake" post disguised as a somewhat serious post in order to get other people to respond. It is typically just a post designed to get a rise out of people.

Usually a "flame" is a post that is hostile or insulting towards other posters. This is the only online forum I have ever seen that seems to use flame interchangeably with troll. Normally the two terms are pretty different (although trolls often post quite a few flames).

Ha, no. Just a girl who's probably going to get fired because she stumbled across this website and has spent the past 3 days focusing on law school apps instead of her job.

Great link, thanks. Also was wondering what "TTT" meant. That's kinda mean, no?

TTT = Schools ranked 101 to 150
TTTT = Schools ranked 151 to 200
TTTTT = Presumably, schools ranked 201 to 204 (lol)

Don't let the bastards get you down.

Actually, it's far too nice for some of those diploma mills that are fucking people's lives and watering down the profession.

It's what people here call trolls for some reason
