Some help with sarcasm
So, related to this pairings war wank, I write:
Hmmm. As a non-shipper, it doesn't seem obvious to me that anybody will end up with anybody. *shrug*
To which the OP responds:
so...were you born blind? or did it happen later in life?
Someone else responds:
Wow. That was a pretty harsh response to a pretty harmless comment.
Sez the OP:
yeah, 'cause it's not like i was being sarcastic or anything.
... That was sarcasm? What did you mean, then? That... what I said was blindingly obvious? I really can't figure out what you meant.
The OP replies:
no. that r/hr is obvious in the books.
Ooookay. So, she meant what she said in the second quote, about me being blind. But if she meant what she said, it's not sarcasm, unless it's some advance form of sarcasm that just flies over my head. Did she mean "hyperbole" instead of "sarcasm"?
I'm so confused.
ETA: Fixed second link.
