I use random faces or my text just seem not too serious. I don't like expressing sarcasm through text though, the other person might mistaken what you're trying to say.

I can agree with that, but sometimes saying certain things when you're totally serious can be taken the wrong way. For instance, if I replied to you in this manner.

"Yea and we should have a sarcasm button on our keyboards."

If I read that it could go either way. ya kno what I mean? I guess the visual aid here and there could help also (like all those fail pictures.)


Hence I clarify afterwards!

"Yeah, and we should have a sarcasm button on our keyboards..."
"...and I'm not joking about that."

Or something to that effect.

*clearly you all understand this topic*

Try to exaggerate the sarcasm some so that they know you are talking down to them. If you are goinbg for a more dead-pan humor type of post, stick with asterisks (*).

I use emoticons. But sometimes I wonder how people can't sense straight out sarcasm. I mean, are they that dense? ;___;

One does not simply talk about sarcasm. It's knowledge is guarded by thousands of wicked sideways & hidden rapists. Who will be worthy of carrying the burden of sarcasm? Will it be the nerds? The geeks? The Wapanese?

It's not a good practice, but I usually assume people understand what sarcasm is. And I try to make it obvious if it's not too obvious. If all else fails, I like the [/sarcasm] approach, where you just type that after a sarcastic comment, indicating you are "turning off sarcasm."
