Do people use this word (in the "flame war" context) anymore?

I just heard someone use it, and it sounded... quaint.

I'm thinking it has been supplanted by "troll".

It's a bit sad as my flame retardant suit is hanging in my wardrobe gathering mothballs.

If you had asked me 10 years ago if I thought the term "flame" would fall out of fashion, that would have been an obvious "no". It's not like flames are going to disappear from the Internet.

Well, they haven't. Just the word. Langamuage is innersting.

The first I've heard it used in years. But Pepperidge Farm remembers.
