Sarcastic fairy visit??????? - page 2
I was just wondering, did the sarcastic fairy visit the board or what. I have read a few threads that basically have turned mighty ugly within a few posts. I understand the tones of some of the posts... Read More

curious to which theads you refer.....
Jan 2, '03Joined: Dec '01; Posts: 3,165; Likes: 59I used to be a Past Master at Sarcastic Wit, when I was a kid.
One day, I tossed off yet another Incredibly Witty, Erudite, Sophisticated--you get the picture*sigh*---remark, and
the girl that it was directed at looked at me, so stunned and hurt, and it felt like a knife went through my chest.
I was shook. I went home and thought, "If that's power, I don't want it. Sarcasm is easy. Wisdom--love--compassion--they're hard." It was a real turning point in my life. I no longer felt the trap of being cool at the expense of another.
and for the life of me, i dunno what got me started on this.... sorry!
maybe it's because I've noticed a theme of not just sarcasm, but some posts are downright mean to the poster.....and really, it's sooooo unnecessary. Life is too short to waste it on vituperative.

I can be sarcastic sometimes but I dont think I'm ever downright mean or evil at least I hope not
but you have to admit, sometimes just sometimes sarcasm is the only effective way to get a point across to some people...
mean no, sarcastic , only on days ending in Y
I have noticed some cut downs and shall we say Unniceness on the boards but overall I find that its very civil..which is nice .
