I actually think there isn't enough punctuation; it's really all I can do to make my way around language, pausing here and there to figure out whether something is imperative or delcarative. It would be real fabulous to have a form of punctuation that denotes a statement that ends with an appeal for confirmation, wouldn't it(insert said punctuation here).
Also we need to have a second person plural. Y'all might work for tea partyist ray1963 below, but I prefer to have a bit more range and class in formal writing.
is it ironic that this is required?
If you need a mark to show your writing is ironic, your doing it wrong.
great, awesome, wonderful
I think this could be useful, conveying sarcasm in online conversations can be pretty difficult sometimes.
Wikipedia is bad enough at documenting actual things, without needing to make up nonexistant things to write about
Well I suppose it makes written works easier to understand without the constant narration of sarcasm, certainty, etc.
I AM GOING TO USE THIS ALL THE TIME.
HolyShit! I never knew, I'm going to use this all the time
I'm totally going to start using this :)
...but then you'd miss the fun of having people wonder wether you are being serious or not.
I think giving an emoticon a right ear to go with the left one (example: (-_-)? makes the chap look lopsided, like a teapot, no?) is a fucking GREAT idea. Props!
Is this irony ؟ ?
I think we also need a sarcasm mark. It would be terrible if people actually had to be intelligent enough to get humor.
