Say, that's swell that by providing "additional context" for your post to an old short story, escabeche, you made it "clear why you're posting it to MetaFilter". It's a good single-link archival content. Really, a very good post.

Sarcasm on the internet is dumb. I don't even know if this post represents jokey sarcasm; I'm mostly annoyed that I have to say this, so I'll say it again in the hopes that it will be the last time I need to.

Have you got a problem with that guy's comment? Because this is just a website, buddy, too fucking bad.

And sarcastic tags are even worse, by the way.

I'm still trying to figure out if this is sarcasm. Is it, Ardiril? If so, it seems overly fighty and, I'm sorry to say, a bit jerkish.

Just flag and move on, dude.

Hey, though, now that I think about it SLOC (say it "schlock") is kind of a neat acronym.

Well, I favorited it. Do I have to point out it was not a sarcastic favorite?

Is Ardiril being sarcastic, though? Surely not. I mean, it is a good post, isn't it? Isn't it?

Well, I think it is.

I'm not going out to the cornfield to check. YOU go out to the cornfield.

This seems silly no matter what you're trying to say by it.

Yeah if you could actually be straight on this and explain this post, that'd be great.

I would say that the rash of seeming dickfaceishness is something that's turning me off of MeFi, but that would make me a liar and not a little hypocritical. Rather, it's the seeming dickfaceishness that doesn't make any sort of sense that rankles.

I prefer Shark Week to Snark Week, I think.

If you have something you want to discuss with the community, make it unambiguously clear what it is and skip this weirdness, because this is a waste of basically everyone's time. Metatalk is a resource for folks to have useful discussions about how this place works; please do not abuse that through either needless ambiguity or willful sarcasm.
