Flouncing - What’s it all about

Flouncing is something I see in most forums but there seems to be an awful lot of it in this particular forum. What is it all about? Is it just a cry for attention from people who think they are not getting enough attention / respect? I have always believed if you really want to leave a forum then you just do it, you stop posting, people who announce they are leaving invariably come back pretty damn quick.
Have you ever flounced? Was it a cry for attention or were you serious about quitting?

You Colin (or Dave), are on my utter wavelength bud
I have no unearthly idea at all what a "floucer" is, nor do I even care. It sounds, exactly as you inquire, like some nobody wannabe who wants some glorified attention. Perhaps ask the Candy Thread - they might know

Re: Flouncing - What’s it all about

There is a difference between taking a short break to recharge one's batteries, and leaving forever.

I have just taken some time out, because I was fed up with the arguments and bad feeling going on.

If I had said I was leaving for good, never to darken the door againk, I would have gone for good.

Sometimes a short sabbatical is all that is needed to refresh the old brain cells, I see nothing wrong with that.

There was a bit of flouncing a while ago but it's not that common now I thought or have I missed something ?

Re: Flouncing - What’s it all about

Well I can admit to flouncing 3 times and begged to return by the forum owner each time. The fourth time was the last, he could get down on hands and knees, kiss my medium size butt, offer me the moon and stars and I still would not return.

When I finally make up my mind to flounce, I flounce.
