    I seriously think that we need to adopt a font color to indicate sarcasm in threads and posts
    a lot of sarcastic / smarta$$ coments get taken seriously , when a simple color of font would show sarcasm/humour etc
    Sarcasm
    Sarcasm
    Sarcasm
    what do you think??

    eh, what about this: <sarcasm>sarcastic comments go here</sarcasm>

    Afraid if we here at Prepared Society adopt a particular color to denote sarcasm, the newbies won't read it in the FAQ and will get their tender wittle feelings hurt. Old timers would probably tell ya where to stick it.

    Or what if we use the sarcastic smiley in front and behind: :rolleyes:

    No matter what we do, some people still won't get it, even if you bring crayons to draw the picture. :D

    <edit> got to thinking. Did not intend my remarks as a disparagement on the new posters, only that someone new to the internet and this forum may not be used to this.

    That's what I do. I think most folks know what that smiley signifies.

    If we go with a color, I vote for green. Green was innocently being all nature-like when it was hijacked by a political movement. I would like to (sarcastically) repurpose it. :rolleyes:

    Forget that crap! Green is my color and I try not to be sarcastic! Maybe it should be pink!

    Even my name is a green!:p
