Thank you Hind Samy for giving us the definitions of a Flamer and a Troll. So if some posters keeps on over-using the same issue for days, weeks and months and don't let the subject go, then will they, as a group, be called flamingos?

And if a poster keeps on saying to other posters , 'you don't know anything', you're coward, ignorant, OMG, you don't know the spelling of flamer ('I know more than you, because I'm English') then will you call him/her a Troll or a Flamer?
Please clarify. Thanks.
