rave: [WPI] vi. 1. To persist in discussing a specific subject.
   2. To speak authoritatively on a subject about which one knows
   very little.  3. To complain to a person who is not in a position
   to correct the difficulty.  4. To purposely annoy another person
   verbally.  5. To evangelize.  See flame.  6. Also used to
   describe a less negative form of blather, such as friendly
   bullshitting.  `Rave' differs slightly from flame in that
   `rave' implies that it is the persistence or obliviousness of the
   person speaking that is annoying, while flame implies somewhat
   more strongly that the tone or content is offensive as well.
