    Sarcasm

    I read several very sarcastic replies from the same individual towards users who asked questions relating to his/her postings. Are there rules that would prohibit further postings by someone who continually posts such messages or is it just up to the users to ignore someone whose messages are rude or overly sarcastic.

    Re: Sarcasm

    No, that was just good natured banter because we know Howard is a good guy. This was a guy in Access.

    Eileen,

    I was worried about some comments I've made as well- because Howard seems to have all but disappreared from the forum. I hope we didn't scare him off

    Re: Sarcasm

    Eileen, It seems to me that a fine line often exists betweeen 'sarcasm', 'humor' and 'constructive criticism'.

    Having been a part of the previous Lounge for a year or two, it has surprised me how well behaved the members generally are (compared, for example, to the typical newsgroup).

    But the discussion in this thread does raise the question as to whether the Lounge needs to publish an Acceptable Use Policy and if so, who is to be the arbiter.

    What do you think?

    Eileen swings a wild stick if one mis behaves, she will let you have it.

    Most of time if we in humor get off track and a little personel all one needs to say is "HOld it" (maybe we need a special ICON for this) and we will back off.[img]/w3timages/icons/scream.gif[/img]

    Re: Sarcasm

    No way to scare me away, I've been amazingly busy.
    Potential contracts have been coming out of the woodwork.

    Not to mention, I've got to do my taxes to figure out what I can contribute to my SEP-IRA.

    If I get these contracts, I will have to greatly restrict which forums I even look at.

    Re: Sarcasm

    Good to see you're still around. After a flurry of posts you seemed to disappear completely.

    You surprise me! Haven't you noticed this place is a Police State? I don't wear jackboots and carry a whip just to look cool, ya know.

    I'll put this back into the latest FAQ: (I'd forgotten)

    In line with standard web practice, we don't allow dangerous or offensive material or links. Young people visit the board so nothing "Adult" please and play nice or you'll be sent to your room.

    And don't forget the warts. Though most young people already have pimples large enough to be warts anyway.

    Hi Howard, that's great news about the contracts. Don't stay away too much though - the Lounge isn't the same when you're not around. [img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    You're in charge of the inflicting warts department.
    "Head of Warts" maybe?

    Re: Sarcasm

    I seem to have inherited that. I thought it started from you though?
