I figured I'd start this thread as a discussion of:
Some of us are left, some are right, but I assume all of us have beliefs or ideas that are contrasting to the majority that we are normally part of.
For example. I am a Democrat. (There, I said it, oh no...)

But one thing that I believe in strongly, that is against the "blue" side of things is that I believe in my right to own guns, and I exercise this right.
I am not a gun nut, I am not registered with the NRA. I do NOT hunt, I do NOT believe in harming others, or animals (except for food).

But, nonetheless I own guns, I believe in my right to own guns, I believe in my right to defend my property and family, and I would be very against anyone taking that right away from me, or imposing regulations that infringe on that right.

That's my hypocritical tendency. What's yours?

Posting after a flounce. I hate it when people do that.

Haven't come across this term being used before, "Posting after a flounce",
what does it mean?

I think it might have been a dig on me, or it was comic satire. But I must admit I don't recall the word flounce in my vocabulary, and had to look it up. :-)

Did you see that other word they used in Wikipedia, the "w" word?
I'm sure Ms MisFit did not intend for this to be included too, she's far to
proper for that.

Virtually the same as what you get from Wiki's. Didn't see the wan***
word in the urban definitions as apposed to those of Wiki's.

Anyway, Misfit has introduced us to a goodly term usable in context
with an action, possibly unsavory, whilst in the act of blogging.

Come-on ID do us a flounce and lets see it in action....

I totally disagree with you here, Sirius, I've had enough, "I'M LEAVING",
and I'm not coming back!!

There is some noted variability in the ability of flouncers to remain flounced. Speculation as to the flouncer's ability to 'stick the flounce' is a common topic, post-flounce. It is the totally unfair and unwarranted observation of this author--as implied by the above set of reasons for flounces--that flouncing is a particularly common maneuver amongst tone trolls.

Ho-ho, do flouncers and trolls have something in common?

Ay-oop! is ID going for a full blown flounce here, could be accused of being
a troll too if he comes.
