spelling flame
Jump to user comments
messaging A Usenet posting ostentatiously correcting a
previous article's spelling, possibly as a way of casting
scorn on the point the article was trying to make, instead of
actually responding to that point (compare dictionaryflame). Of course, people who are more than usually slovenly
spellers are prone to think *any* correction is a spelling
flame. It's an amusing comment on human nature that spelling
flames themselves often contain spelling errors.
