    Have you tried a dictionary?

    I don't know the technical definition, but its basically an email about a complaint that the person has.

    A rant is when you want to basically get something off your chest and it may or may not have to do with something on this board. It could be venting about something that happened at work, something that happened on the way to the feed store, etc. Usually something that you didn't like or don't like that you really just need to "yell" about.

    [​IMG] <-- This guy is probably ranting, or wants to.
    [​IMG] < -- This guy is in the middle of a good rant. Heck, if you look at the smiley names, he's even called "rant". [​IMG]
    [​IMG] < -- This guy has been ranting so much that someone finally put duct tape over his mouth!
