    Thumbs up HUMOR and SARCASM..... we have to be more transparent.

    Please folks...i have received numerous private messages over the last day or 2 re: sacrcasm and humor.
    Mostly they are confused and do not see the humor or sarcasm in some postings.

    Please use the smilies.

    especially the "wink"

    thanks


    Per the Rules

    • Use smiley faces, emoticons or other indicators of intent liberally. One of the major flaws of Internet communication is the lack of vocal inflections and visual indications of emotion, intent, sarcasm, etc. Be clear what you mean. Many problems occur because someone does not pick up on the sarcasm or otherwise get the joke.

    I have such a hard time with that. I tend to be a bit sarcastic and almost always erase & retype a post, or click to submit the post and think CRAP that could be taken wrong and have to go back & edit. I like a plain smiley face at the end of most posts, I'm usually quite happy chatting here about Aruba

    (see it happened again! the : & the ) almost type themselves!)
