Perhaps it could be required that flames be in Klingon.  I doubt that 
there are too man Klingons on the list who would be offended by having 
their language be the official language of flames.  Besides, it seems an 
appropriate language for flames by its nature, and the limited number of 
native speakers would certainly limit the number of flame messages.

Now, as for enforcement....
