It appears that I've grossly underestimated the capacity of some on this forum to recognize sarcasm, and as a consequence I've managed to put more than one members panties in a bunch.

It has never been my intention to upset anyone on this forum, but it seems all too easy to do.

Today I was told I'm disrespectful, among other things, and at least partially the cause of a thread being closed.
In recent days I've been accused on this forum of insulting a moderator.

In light of this I've decided to drastically curtail my participation here.
I've enjoyed most of my time here...,

I support your choice sometimes it's just not worth it.

Well, you will be missed. A hand slap is not such a bad thing.

That is a huge problem with the written word as we lose voice inflections and physical actions/expressions which help convey sarcasm and cynicism. I know of which I speak as I dearly love to employ both..

As Peyton Manning would say, rub some dirt on it and get back in the fray. ;)

Yeah. What Czechbikr said! If you're not sure if your comments may or may not be taken the wrong way, employ lots of smileys!
But, don't leave! Stick around. ;)

I got the "nothing to see here, move along" reference. I saw nothing offensive. I know when I post something that someone else has already posted, I just think "aww, dang, I wanted to be the one who broke the news!"

But that's it. I don't get all "teste" about it.

Finally a thread where I'm somewhat of an authority. :D I've had my hands slap on lots of different forums usually because someone doesn't have the same type of humor as I do.

You may also notice that I give some people more of a hard time there others. 95% of them, I've met in person so they know that I'm kidding. Poor Kruizer gets it a lot and probably deserves it the least. When I met him he was extremely helpful to me and my son and I will also be thankful that I met him. :thumb:I kid MG about his wife, but not before talking with him offline.

My point is, if you've offended someone, send them a PM. Work it out, carry on and as Czechbikr said rub some dirt on it.:D

I try and use the universal (or at least MadKaw approved, I think it is any way :D) colour of sarcasm... which just so happens to be TH's favorite colour! :D :D :D
