When I read the WARNING thing of submitting messages, I saw something interesting and I was wondering if anyone knew what Flames or Bashes mean?

In terms of forums: posting or writing messages on the message board with the intention of insulting.

Flames is pretty much insults. "You suck!", "You're an idiot" etc.

I'm not sure about bashing. I think it's just another word for flaming but don't quote me on that.

Flaming: Intentional disrespect, usually vulgar, meant to degrade or insult a user of a particular forum.

It's almost universally not allowed and if frequent becomes a bannable offense.

Bashing: Similar to flaming, but usually meant to degrade or belittle a person OR group of persons.

For example, going on an anti-gay tirade here would be bashing, not flaming, despite the existence of gay, bisexual, and other sexual minorities on this site.

Bashing is quite commonly an easily justifiable ban, due to the sensitive nature of the group aspect and the common groups bashing is aimed at.

Long story short, so long as you don't act like a jackass and insult people here, your account is safe =3

Flaming is a post in which a user instigates a negative response or to invoke an argument.

Bashing on the other hand is more like attacking someone for their opinion.
