    I was just reading the 'Who should vote' thread and a bunch of us were stepping into the same pothole. Can we agree on a way to convey sarcasm via text? Just one consistent, reliable, GT universally understood standard.

    The new smileys are gay.

    I found a pack of the old ones. I rarely use them anyway.

    Most everything I post is rife with trollish sarcasm that amuses me. I don't concern myself too much with how folks take what I say.

    I agree a sarcasm font is needed.

    Way too much effort.

    The problem with writing is that 80% of communication is non verbal, (vocal tone, facial expressions, etc.).

    I look at every post as sarcastic unless there is effort put into the post to make it actually serious.

    As for me you can probably figure 80% of what I post has at least some level of sarcasm in it.

    To clarify, this post is the other 20% I think :upeyes:

    The ambiguity of sarcasm is half the fun.

    Purple is probably slightly easier than what is another sarcasm font
