Edited version of link results:

A *flounce* post is when one must proclaim that they are leaving a
community <http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Community> forever. These
attention wh*res <http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Attention_whores> are
nearly as amusing as those who use "deleting your LiveJournal
<http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Deleting_your_LiveJournal>" for
attention. Rather than quietly leaving an LJ community, they feel they
must leave a long ass, boring, nonsensical post explaining why they are
so much more highly evolved <http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Evolution>
than anyone else in the community. Names may be named, events may be
recalled, but they are, at essence, a nice, delicious whine.

Like any good whine, flounces are varied in their history
<http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Shit_nobody_cares_about>, maturity
<http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Maturity>, texture
<http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Roman_shower>, quality, bouquet and
mouth feel <http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Fellatio>, but all boil
down to a subtle, inherent, and slightly fruity
<http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Gay> expressiveness
<http://encyclopediadramatica.com/FYIAD>:

... followed by an example.
