    I see we've reached the point of attacking people's characters for voicing a different opinion.

    Shut up! No one is doing that and you are completely wrong for saying that.
    Fool.

    I like it here, makes me laugh to see how funny I am.

    Overreact much?

    Telling someone their masculinity must be threatened because they have a different opinion is vaguely doing that...

    My comment was meant to be a joke commenting on how these discussions devolve into meaningless attacks... As they often do.

    You can always ignore me if you don't like what I say...

    But no one here really has the right to tell anyone else to "shut up" and there's no need for name calling.

    Have fun being funny.

    I'm pretty sure Clem was being sarcastic with his comment...

    I agree...I just don't know if others will recognize that.

    I read it and wondered whether people would recognise the humour. I did, and the irony of it made me chuckle. The fact that they signposted the fact they were intending humour at the end made it less likely to miss, so I left it.

    Pretty sure people will flag if they have a problem with it and if so, I'll review my position.

    Please don't remove on my account...I found it funny...I'm just not as funny myself.

    If people don't I'm not sure they should be on the Internet, it was so over the top that's what made it funny
    Your a reasonable person aren't you? Or are you Welsh?

    If I may ask a question with your mod head on, would it be helpful if I stated when I'm joking? I am more than happy to add the following to any and all posts

    This is a joke
    In fact if you've got a minute it's a 12 storey joke with magnificent carpeting throughout, turn down service in all rooms and a big neon sign that says "this is a joke"

    Maybe you could have some sort of visual prompt you put at the end like a winky but not a winky? Like a clown face? Except Clowns are evil and I would immediately want you banned. So...uhm...maybe some sort of humorous font?

    Acting preemptively, before someone appeared claiming for it: no, this character just doesn't deserve a non derailed thread. Maybe the next one if devs reformed themselves.
    So everything is completely all right. Thanks.

    It might help in the earlier example. There are some things (e.g. racist/sexist jokes) that just putting "It's a joke" after would not make it acceptable. But there's a finer line in other contexts and that comes down to knowing your audience and them knowing you. If in doubt, put a disclaimer.

    OK but it sounds alot of work and negates being humorous when i point out im being humorous, maybe I shouldn't post anything funny which will severely limit my posting ability.

    To be clear, I agree about negating the humour element. I'm not advocating putting a disclaimer every time and I think in the majority of instances it is not a problem. I just answered your question "would it be helpful?" in a probably too literal way.

    Unfortunately this isn't the first time we've had this conversation.

    Once, someone sardonically called me a "Humor Genius" because I said something they didn't like...

    So I wrote that on a napkin and took a picture of it.

    Now it's my profile picture so if anyone thinks I said something offensive, they can look at the picture and know I'm just joking.

    At least, that's how it worked in my head, but I might be the only person that finds it funny.
