Flood means to receive so much information so fast on your screen that you are disconnected from the server. A person can be "flooded" if they type the /list command (will often happen on large networks where there are thousands of channels) or if they receive a lot of CTCP commands at one time. You can also flood yourself off by sending too much information to a channel at one time, i.e. pasting seven or eight lines of text at once in the channel window.
