The definitions below were taken from Google.

Quote:
Flaming is the performance "art" of posting messages that are deliberately hostile and insulting in the social context of a discussion board (usually on the Internet). Such messages are called flames, and are often posted in response to flamebait. Flaming is one of a class of economic problems known as The Tragedy of the Commons, when a group holds a resource (in this case, communal attention), but each of the individual members has an incentive to overuse it.

Quote:
The use of all capital letters in an e-mail message for the purpose of conveying anger. An e-mail typed in all capital letters is interpreted as shouting. It may also refer to a “heated” exchange of angry words between two or more people in a chat room, forum, or other form of communication on the Internet.

So basically, they are rude comments which will anger other people.

No. Spams are useless posts which don't have any meaning (crap) while flames are posts which do have meaning - usually insults which will cause others to get mad.

Spaming = making a post whit only a link, an icon (or full of them), just one or 2 words (or keep posting the same word/phrace over and over), keep making posts whitout giving ppl the chance to write too (make like 2+ posts or so in a row on the same topic), make topics already exists, make topics just to attract ppl into "gain a free psp, etc", make useless posts just to gain other posts, etc.

Flamming = make ANY kind of post whit the only reason of INSULT/bash/critic whit bad words.

A flamer is slang from someone who is homosexual. Maybe flaming is derived from that.

Any word is OK as long as you know what you are posting, but try to refrain from using offensive words frequently.

Usually, we do not ban people unnecessarily without warning. Do not worry if you make some mistakes. Usually some admin are kind enough to PM you if you made some mistakes, so do not worry and take the warning positively.

yeah as they said...

Flaming=when you attack the poster with harsh words or any harsh actions or maybe insulting and the likes.

Spamming=when posting many post at any given time but with no sense at all or just posting for the sake of getting something... i think
