Remember the flame war I had with SM because of Ikik? Well this is essentially the same thing. I can't tell when he's joking. At all. I can't really tell with Technomage here either.
I think we're gonna have to fess up here. Unless you're *really* good at it (and nobody here is) the sarcasm is going to be read as "I want to be mean" sarcasm. It will not be read as "I want to be funny" sarcasm. It just doesn't work. So yeah, if people would start going <nothing personal, I'm trying to be funny>I want you to be blown into a million pieces, and have your giblets eaten by rabid wombats</Was that funny - I can't tell> around the sarcastic parts, there will be a lot of hate and next to no lovin' around here.
Is it not nifty? Sluggy Freelance. Worship the comic.

---That's my point. You should stop taking everything so seriously. - Psycho Sam! - 2000-05-10 00:00:00
