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."


i kinda agree...i tend to assume that people will get that i'm being sarcastic, but sometimes this just comes off as me being an asshole, which isn't that far off either. lol. but yeah.....if they don't catch on...just use something to indicate your being sarcastic. people are intelligent. (sarcasm).

When using sarcasm in simple texts, I usually:
- Expand the word
- Use italics or bold
- Use emoticons

This thread is really interesting. All your replies are original and thought provoking.

That's what italics are for. Rest assured, I wasn't making fun of anyone here. No sir.

I don't. I am sarcastic over the internet, but people can take it how they want to.

I know there is a thread called Hypocrites, Oxymoron, and Sarcasm already

its not quite what I'd like to discuss, but feel free to lock this if you'd like.





Sarcasm is usually expressed when you are speaking, you usually change the tone to, well, sound sarcastic (Like the "no shit, sherlock" tone). Since I happen to be very cynical I notice that I use a lot of sarcasm everyday. I also consider asking rhetorical questions a form of sarcasm. But other than that its hard to express sarcasm to someone who is thick or dimwitted. I want to know, how would you express sarcasm with only text?



Upon reading the replies I wonder if anyone realises the irony of this thread. Examples are a good way to get the point across, but also trying to use sarcasm to explain what sarcasm is, is where the Irony lies.
