I just wanted to stop in here and say, with no sarcasm at all, that I really appreciate how people are separating the nutso tumblr-kiddies from actual online activists without being prompted or anything.  It's really awesome.
Sarcastically saying you're not saying something sarcastically? Double sarcasm, sarcasmception, or sarcasm-shit-stack?

No, I have a personal rule that if I say "no sarcasm," I always mean "no sarcasm," because it's so fucking hard to tell if I'm being sarcastic or not.
Huh. Well it seemed to me like they kind of were lumping together Tumblrites and reasonable web activists, and that you were sarcastically objecting.

It isn't as if there's a simpler way to indicate sarcasm⸮

We can use that hip new fad of using #hashtags at the end of #posts to indicate we're using #sarcasm. It's really #clever and #not #silly or #overused at all. #sarcasmthat was so meta I vomited in my mouth a bit.

Personally I think the BBCode [sarcasm] [/sarcasm] should be a thing.

And when you use it, the readers webcam should track their eyes, and when they read that part, it should say, "Oh, yeah, that's TOTALLY not sarcasm at ALL. Why would I EVER be sarcastic?"

Basically, she takes pictures with disposable cameras, but rather than sending them to be developed she just throws the cameras away.

I'm hoping that it only happened that one time, and she did it reluctantly because someone else insisted that she use them.

If not, I'm going to die a little inside.
