Spell Check

People, pulleaze!

At least spell check the post titel. Otherwise, it reflects poorly uppon the poster.

He also misspelled upon and pullies. Obviously in a humorous reference.

"Obviously in a humorous reference."

Whew. Glad sarchasm is still detectable or obvious to some...

It's almost incomprehensible to me how some people miss the sarcastic comments in these forums, as they sound so obvious. Usually I write it off as the people being ironic and sarcastic themselves by pretending not to notice the sarcasm, but sometimes I don't think this is the case.

Sarcasm is highly dependent on word inflection and tone of voice...both of which are nearly impossible to convey on a medium such as this.

But irony is easily conveyed through the written word. I wasn't making fun of you specifically, as you probably just passed over his short post with a simple glance and noticed the misspelling, but there's been much more obvious cases when someone makes a post about subject X, and in it includes a completely ironic statement, and people then point it out and tell him he made a mistake.

It's especially bad when it's a philosophical concept that has irony included in it, because then you know it wasn't just someone glancing over the text, they actually understood the concept and their minds still couldn't comprehend irony so obvious it pokes you in the eye.

Irony? I thought we were talking about sarcasm...?

Irony is VERY easy to convey using the written word. Just look at any of Doug Adams' work :wink:

True, I love Marvin the Robot, if that's his name. Douglas is awesome at portraying both irony and sarcasm in his writing.

Lunar mentioned sarcasm, but his post seemed to be mostly ironic to me, as he was talking about how people should learn to spell and then said

Not really sarcastic, but more ironic, which is why I made the switch-a-roo (as you Canadians would say) from mentioning sarcasm to mentioning irony.

Most sarcasm that isn't communicated through the internet is the lame type of sarcasm nobody cares about anyway though, and the type that usually needs a  :rolleyes: at the end of it.
