Well judging by the fact that my thread does not relate in any way shape or form to the 8800 series of nvidia gpu's and by the fact that someone only posted to say something negative about said gpu, and finally judging by the fact that in general one flames negative comments about something they do not like, I think it would suffice to say that COD2-fanatics' comment was in fact a flame.
