    I thought it might save space if everyone who was going to leave for greener pastures did their flouncing announcements in one place, namely here.

    Please fill out the following form when flouncing:

    Handle_____________
    Sock Puppet(s)_______________

    I'm flouncing because (check all that apply):
    ____the God Pushers are mean to me.
    ____the Atheists are mean to me.
    ____the mods aren't tough enough on _________ (insert names).
    ____the Mods are Nazis.
    ____HubPages killed my goldfish.

    I'll be back:
    ____when hell freezes over.
    ____when I get banned from HubPages.
    ____when I'm sure everyone here has forgotten I told them to go screw themselves.
    ____when I sober up (that one's for you BC wink )

    On returning my handle will be:
    ____the same as my current handle.
    ____the same as my current handle with a '2' at the end.
    ____completely different until a Mod outs me.

    Other Information:

    ____I will make no secret that I'm still lurking and reading everything about me.

    ____I would like you to pretend you don't know that I'm still lurking around.

    ____I'll be back under other names immediately.

      Mrvoodoo, what a snappy idea to create this perfect "I'm leaving" tool. This is definitely a time saver and should come in handy especially for those who a long line of puppetry stashed. http://www.freewebby.com/happy-smilies/24.gif

    __Please pretend you don't know that I'm still lurking around.

    As much as I'd like to take credit for this I can't, I stole it and adapted it for HubPages from elsewhere.

    Satire - " the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc. "

    1. Lisa HW profile image66
      Lisa HWposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      "deriding" seems a little harsh (although I'm not, of course, debating the definition).   In this case, I like to think it's more a matter of a little good natured humor about something that does ring a bell quite often.   smile
