    Well i don't think that the flamewars are about stealing ideas from
    people. That's not the point. There are people with different opinions
    and everyone thinks he's right and want's to convince the other.
    That's not comparable to a real fight, were you'd probably kill
    someone for getting something.

    When i read what you write, i think you mean something like a fight
    for a tool. Like two people would fight for a car or something. But
    this is not comparable again, because if i copy a meme, an idea,
    the other person doesn't lose it.
