    Heinlein had a different view when he wrote:

    A practical joker deserves applause for his wit according to its quality. Bastinado is about right. For exceptional wit one might grant keelhauling. But staking out on an anthill should be reserved for the very wittiest.

    He must have been in a rare get off my lawn mood when he wrote that.

    I think this thread started out sincere, but it's ending in a big sargasm

    Well what does the green guy represent? I've always used it to indicate sarcasm.

    Maybe if sarcasm was mixed with cats, it would recognizable.

    I find this place to be mostly self-correcting, which means that I could be part of the problem, that is, if there is a problem.

    That may be correct,but those in the wrong are not always obvious.

    From my experience, TDPRI is the most well-behaved site on the net. I've seen sites where people are constantly snarling and ugly. Paul did a fine job setting up proper ground rules and mods.

    As for sarcasm, I think it works best between friends. If somebody knows you like them, they are not going to be easily slighted or offended. If I am sarcastic with a stranger, they might take exception or feel insulted. That's my impression anyway.

    I think I will undertake a hermeneutic analysis of cultural meanings attached to irony and sarcasm on internet forums (fora?). It will be interesting to see whether or not a fusion of horizons could occur. Perhaps then I will know whether someone is having a go at me, or just pulling my leg.

    Hermeneutic analysis sounds very, very painful :eek:
