In a face to face conversation I catch it pretty easily. It's a bit more difficult online sometimes.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 4/17/03 - 9:28:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's almost impossible to pick it up online.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 4/17/03 - 9:31:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, online it's almost impossible, except emoticons make it easier a bit. I can pretty much in real life though.

Tone of voice says it all,its usually easy online too,almost as if you can hear them over the screen

Yes, sarcasm is impossible to detect online. testing...

Depends. Sometimes I spot it really easily, other times it goes right over my head.

Easily in person. Online after you get to know the style of the person it gets easier.

17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 5/5/03 - 4:48:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Easily,that is if my sarcasm dectector isn't broken.

Extremely easy to detect in person. Quite hard online. In person I can tell when someone's *trying* to be sarcastic, online however I frequently end up asking, "Are you being sarcastic?" and then having the person get angry at me.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/21/03 - 6:15:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
i can sense it mostly b/c thats what all im about..sarcasm
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/21/03 - 6:17:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, you're not, tableSalt.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/21/03 - 6:23:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have ISSUES with sarsasm, which I wont get into...but yes I mostly can detect it.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 8/9/03 - 8:54:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Although I am an extremely sarcastic person...I have problems detecting it in others. I'm so sarcastic...it sickens people--you'd think I'd be able to tell if others are.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 8/10/03 - 1:18:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, not very well- i mean, i can sometimes but not all the time! i have to have it explained occassionally!
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 8/10/03 - 1:25:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Im usually ok at detecting it.It only occasionally escapes me.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 8/14/03 - 9:57:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I usw alot of sarcasim so of coarse I can detect it.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 9/14/03 - 11:51:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
Very easily--probably because I use it so much.
