Here’s how the TOS defines “flounce” posts . .  .hasty goodbyes criticizing Weddingbee or its users that are written to stir up drama

@Chrysoberyl:  Yes every now and then, usually after some drama.  People will start a post criticizing others on the site or how the site is run, and say they are never coming back.

IMO, people flounce to get even more attention. “Oh no, don’t leave!” “don’t be upset, we still love you” etc. If you’re going to be involved in a discussion, stand behind your words. It’s only the Internet, after all!

Anytime someone starts a thread announcing their departure, I flag it as flounce. 
Before I knew what it meant, I googled the term.  Google is awesome.  So are dictionaries.

@Chrysoberyl:  Something along the lines of “This website is bullshit, people suck, I’m not being treated fairly, I’m out” is not okay.  A general “signing off but best of luck to all the bees out there” is fine.

Ah, I see. It’s like trolling – writing an off-topic and inflamatory post. Or, just being a drama llama.
