My sister's cousin's nephew's wife's cousin's foster-child's birthmother's GRANDFATHER is a REAL PROFESSIONAL WRITER who had TWO ARTICLES published by an AP affiliate on their BLOG, and I studied every single word of what they wrote about pig intestinal paracites AND SO I KNOW BETTER THAN YOU. Who are you people, anyway? All you do is publish vampire fiction and sparkly Harry Potter ripoffs. I have FOURTEEN GOOD REVIEWS ON FANFICTION.NET. I HAVE STREET CRED. I TALKED TO MY LONG DISTANCE INTERNET BOYFRIEND AND HE TOLD ME TO IGNORE YOU.

So I am. Totally. F*** you. F*** all of you. F*** you with a ******* sparkle vampire *****, you ***** **** and *******, eat my ******* jalapino ***** with a serving of glitter. I hope you all ***** ***** ****** and die.

****************8******88*****!!1!1!!!!one one one one ONE!!!1!

I AM PUBLISHING MY NEW THREE THOUSAND PAGE BOOK OF GOTHIC ANTEATER POETRY WITH A REAL LIFE PUBLISHER. THEY SAID THEY WOULD GIVE ME A ONE DOLLAR ADVANCE AND I WOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY FOR ANYTHING SO F*** YOU AND I HOPE YOU ALL DIE.

I AM LEAVING TEH INTERNETS FOREVAR!!!!111on1! GOODBYE!
*slow clap*

Bravo. It's never serious until it's allcaps serious...

Though personally I would have gone on more about the ignorance of every other poster on the board and berated them teenagers or frustrated housewives depending on the age of the flouncer .

Going all out on breaking RYFW is a key part of what earns you the Oscar of flouncing. Break it hard, break it LOUD.

References to the members: if female, they must be referred to as either frustrated housewives, brainless teenagers or "menopausing". Menopausing gets Big Points.

Male members (snerk) are referred to as frustrated, jerks, know-it-alls, know-nothings, arrogant, teenagers, or out-of-touch.

You can, of course, pick 'n' mix from the above to apply to any member.

For optional crossing-the-line points, imply sexual inadequacy, lack of sexual knowledge, and deviancy. Paint a mental image of your target member sniffing the glue in the binding of their hardcover while posting one-handed. State that that hardcover is Twilight, 50 Shades of Grey or any Dan Brown novel for an extra tiresomeness point.

Everyone knows flouncing is all about the exclamation marks.

Hmmmm

Not something easily undone, but there is a sewing technique to make a flounce. It has nothing to do with getting in a snit and stomping out of a room. But... the process of creating a perfect flounce may cause one to seriously consider it.

I hate slammed door flounces. I always think the person is standing just outside the door, feeling sad.

I have always thought of flouncing out as an art form. It takes talent, it takes caps, and it takes a lot of glitter to just let it all hang out before being shown the door.

On another training forum I frequent, being banned is a sign of honor for some. Usually it's by posting a number of inappropriate .gifs, or goat porn--don't ask--or pictures of Winnie the Pooh.

One moderator there banned a fairly well-respected poster for putting up a picture of Winnie with the caption "Have a blustery day" on it. I simply didn't get it, but the guy got banned for a month before being allowed back on the forum.

Be blustery. Bluster, fluster, and flounce your way to immortality. I'll have to keep that as my motto if the day ever comes.
