Somehow, "post-literati" isn't the first phrase that comes to mind when I
think of the readers of Punk magazine . . . .

That's the tired English of the past.

Modern practice among the post-literati permits "flaunt" and "flout" to
be fully interchangeable: why not add "flog" and "flag" to the set?
