** In a similar way, the point of the Flame War or the angry response to the [=Troll}=] isn't out of seriously trying to convince that person of their own error, it is to demonstrate to anyone looking on that their conduct is unwelcome. If someone is saying insanely bigoted things or singling out individuals for personal abuse, for example, flaming them may be seen as a way of discouraging such behavior.

** The FlameWar reaches InternetBackdraft levels.
** The FlameWar shuts down the place where it took place forever, spreads across anything even tangentially related to the subject, or otherwise gains far more notice than a localized dispute.
** The FlameWar actually involves meatspace lawyers or law enforcement at some point.

** The issue that causes the FlameWar is actually SeriousBusiness to some degree and people will obviously have very polarized feelings on something where no agreement between the sides ''can'' be reached. Good (or bad) examples here are most if not all religious and political and cultural {{flame war}}s, because agreement between the sides (as opposed to tolerance of the other's differences but continuing disagreement) would mean one or both sides giving up issues of deep principle or culture to reach a compromise.

** A moderator sees someone flaming and bans them. Things quiet down, but then people who are friends of the banned user realize what happened, and begin to flame the moderator in the thread, reigniting the FlameWar, but over the ban rather than the original topic.
** InternetBackdraft, Holy Wars in general, and meta-flamewars are always Zig Zagged FlameWar, because the actions taken to stop the flamewar become part of it, as do the people demanding it stop, as do the people continuing it or continuing drama related to it.

** InUniverse, a FlameWar is depicted to show the pettiness or stupidity of those involved.
** InUniverse, a character has to deal with FlameWar repeatedly, and this establishes why that character has such a misanthropic view of the internet/of humanity in general.
