To wonder why people post on Flouncers Corner?

If you don't want to go on MN, can't you just stop going on MN? Why post about it - unless you want people to beg you to stay?

I don't get it.

It's easy to hide topics on here, if you don't want to read them.

Didn't start this in response to anyone in particular. Just newish to MN and wondered what it was all about.

GetOrf we (well DD) adopted a baby at the end of out holiday this year. It had been sat on a wall, forlornly, all week.
She's now shoved head first in the toy box but much happier than when on her wall.

I know randall, that is how I feel. The tumbleweed ones make me feel really sad, like teddy bears in charity shops.

I would never have the balls to flounce.

The tumble weed ones make me want to weep. Imagine not even being told to fuck off. Just horrible eerie silence and never knowing if nobody saw or if loads of people saw but just had no I'd who you were.

Wearing a pair of shame induced side-bollocks is one thing but imagine having to name change to avoid the embarrassment of a load of lurkers saying "didn't you flounce last week? Yeah, no one cared".

Be honest though, wouldn't we all love a thread full of ego boosting?

The dog is staring at the cat.
The cat is staring at a seal.
I'm ignoring them.
This is a metaphor.

I think you;re right hassled. I think people have a peak on MN and then just drift off.

Hassled Thu 03-Jan-13 21:40:59

If I decided that enough's enough, time to quit MN, I think I probably would do a "so long and thanks for all the fish" thread, in a symbolic closing of the door sort of way - I mean more for my own sake than for the offchance that someone would think "I wonder what happened to Hassled?" and search Flouncer's Corner.

But I think the reality is that people post less and less often until eventually they just stop. Most people leave over a period of time rather than cold turkey.

Eh? WTF ?confused

you staying or going?

SuePurblyFeltYourPresents Thu 03-Jan-13 21:36:40

YY Gerrof.

Unless I could do a Flora Poste and say something like 'don't forget to feed the parrot', to drive everyone mad.
Well, I say everyone. I mean the four posters who would see it grin

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 03-Jan-13 21:35:10

I would never post a goodbye thread as I would expect the reposnse (if i got one) would be a mix of 'fuck off, then' and 'who?'

flouncers corner is fab! i love the fact the it's blatently attention seeking and kind of sweet that people post on there when they find the need to flounce

not everyone can like all of mn can they, live and let live i say

too many people complain on here, maybe they need something other than mn to fill their time wink

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 03-Jan-13 21:31:32

Aww, I feel sorry for people who post measured and sweet threads in flouncers corner and get about 4 replies.

I think most people use it in a nice way.

It would be great to have more 'piss off you sad, fat lot' type farewells in there.

BarredfromhavingStella Thu 03-Jan-13 21:29:03

I did not know that this existed shock Thanks for bringing to my attention grin

MN as a whole is a histrionics topic.

AfterEightMintyy Thu 03-Jan-13 21:26:31

Heh heh! Just to annoy everyone I have posted in Flouncer's this evening.

Goodbye .....................................................

That's really shit, Schro. Too many good posters being hounded off by the twats.

scottishmummy Thu 03-Jan-13 21:16:16

that's exactly what happened mnhq made flouncers corner to contain them. and the histrionics

Sue I had just read her thread when I spotted this, that's why I thought it was about her.

I think MNHQ invented flouncers corner to stop all the attention seeking nonsense going on in AIBU and chat.

Same! Had to read it a few times before I realised.

SuePurblyFeltYourPresents Thu 03-Jan-13 21:14:21

Arf. EVERYBODY has heard of Father Christmas grin

Oh sad. No, I'm pretty sure it wasn't about her.
