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.

The British Comics Database is growing. Or mutating. I'm not quite sure which, yet.
I want to flounce. I am actually looking for a way to delete my account here. Can someone point me in the right direction?
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.

Can someone please forward me the issue of the newsletter where this week was declared "Convince Chris P He's a Lousy Writer Week"? All the agents, editors, and customers seem to have gotten theirs. Thanks all.
My favourite is still 'This place is more hostile than Afghanistan!'
I wish I was a glow worm. A glow worm's never glum. Cos how you can be grumpy when the sun shines out your bum?
Wondering what it says about me that I always smile when I see this thread pop up.
I want to be a nice person.

You should be hearing Sammy Davis, Jr Jr, man. He's the coolest cat around, man. He can rhyme Afghanistan with man, man and angst with thankst. The COOLEST.

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.
I've been seeing some weak flounces recently. I am beginning to think the golden age of flouncing is over. I mean, 5/10 is the highest I've gone for years.
Yeah--I witnessed a disappointingly flat one just this week. I did enjoy the "Don't let the e-door slam you in the e-ass" speeches after the fact--s6
