I wonder what the phrase is for the person who feels they have to heap
hot coals on the head of the flounce.

Isn't "consider your audience" the first thing they teach in Tech
Writing?

At any rate, here we have a prime and lovely example of "the flounce,"
captured in the wild. I'm more used to the American Extended Adolescent
Flounce, which involves fewer words, more of them made of 4 letters, and
rarely involves headings and sub-points. However, this American Academic
Flounce, while wordier, resembles its cousin in many ways: appeal to
authority, wounded expression of not being appreciated, and reference to
another, similarly underappreciated former group member who, although
he/she left quietly (without flounce), reportedly holds the same views
as the flouncer.

Sincerely,
Madelyn Boudreaux
