Before I get flamed
You're not using that word correctly :)
being attacked online/on a forum.

being attacked online/on a forum. I think it is appropriate. Do you have an alternative suggestion ?
A punch in the face is an attack :)
Calling someone online in a forum a you so-and-so-name-name-insult-insult for saying such-and-such is an attack, a flame.
Someone saying "sorry , but that is not a global..." is not an attack, is not a flame. Even if the monks get a tad pedantic at times, turning typos into "teaching moments", this isn't a flame attack.
I'm not sure, but I think you might be thinking of "nitpicking" (not nitpicking or nitpicking or pedant/pedantic)
Flames aren't nice, I think PerlMonks is nice :)
