    When I say something that turns out to be wrong, I was being sarcastic. I'm sarcastic quite often :rolleyes:

    (P.S. also: this sentence is false.)

    I am bowing out of any more potentially vacation-worthy banter on this particular subject.

    I still think a sarcastic font could be a useful product, but the premise of another 3-day timeout on the horizon has me re-thinking future input on the subject.

    I totally learned my lesson from the last time.

    Joking around is sometimes misconstrued as sarcasm.
    Sarcasm is sometimes misconstrued as joking around.
    Confidence is sometimes misconstrued as conceit and vise versa.
    I think it is just a product of how a person's brain is wired.
    Don't sweat the small stuff. Life is too short to be angry over trivia.
    You can't change me and I can't change you.
    If you want to raise your blood pressure over it, that's a personal choice that you can choose to or to not make.
    You are in total control of your own thoughts. Make your own choices.
    Choose the one that makes you smile.
    Look for the silver lining in every cloud.
    As soon as the comment is spoken, it is in the past.
    I am all for forgetting the past and worrying about something you can actually do something about.
    It's a waste of brain power and precious time to fret about how someone else's brain is wired. It's not something you can change.
    Live long and prosper.

    Is a vintage Klon worth the money?

    My alder Tele has way more mids than my ash Tele, should I sell my ash Tele or buy an amp with a mid control?

    Can I get an SRV sound with .009s?

    What's better, preamp distortion or power amp distortion?

    I'm a newbie, so please handle me with kid gloves 'till I've heard it all and become jaded.

    My previous post was sarcastic, humorous, arrogant, playful and jaded.

    But stated with the warmest intentions for us all to laugh at our collective selves.

    (I was going to include fuzziest in the intentions, but that might have sounded sarcastic)

    Sarcasm is a repeating decimal on the internet...

    I didn't say that to be mean but come on, the Internet is 25 years old. In 1990 if you wanted to go online you had a PC that cost a couple grand, a 15 in monitor and more than likely were sitting at your computer desk. Back then I put more thought into what I wrote as I sure everyone else did. Today people are posting from phones, at the gym, on the train, supermarket wherever. Tablet users are posting from the couch while watching TV or checking out Youtube videos.. Maybe a couple of people are still using pcs from their computer desk. Everyone is multi tasking, no one seems to read through the messages that they reply to or even proof their reply. You can't let what you read bother you. Heck for that matter you can't let what most people say bother you.
