    ^ Anyone who avoids posting in a thread because they don't respect the OP is a bigot lol.

    To be fair, ya haven't exactly posted "something important". All the threads you've made pertain to FCs, minus the 007 Embassy clan-thing ya organized. On the other hand, weird 'n random **** generally gets so many replies because it isn't limited to a single target audience like FC threads for a single game is. The more generalized a thread topic is, the more posts you'll probably get. ... Hence why we have the Lounge (I'm lookin' at you, thread of talkin').

    Also, thread moved to the Lounge forum 'cause I'm an organization nut. Y'all already know this. :lol:

    I've felt that way before. Ah, ol' 2007. Or was it 8? I dunno, what it says on my profile is unreliable.

    "Thanks Wiichat apocalypse!" :D

    Anyway, not to be rude, but try not to be boring, stop posting in ancient threads and stop being creepy with the whole "I wanna play against girls and post in every thread that has something about girls in the subject!" thing.

    Also, welcome to wiichat, biatch.

    Good business advice to. If you limit your product you have limited customers. Hence why medicine is so darn expensive. Because it only pertains to those who need it and because they need it, the product becomes more expensive. /getting off track

    If you want your thread popular then make it broad and vague. Kinda like the title you got there but alas it is too vague which is a whole other topic.

    I don't think that's how the term works.

    If you have to add "punctuation" to that, it's just missing the point. Like saying a pun followed by "pun intended".

    or to indicated the 3 levels of irony

    Do you think, what you are thinking is interesting

    1. What you are thinking is a tread name. I am either questioning what he is thinking or the thinking tread.
    2. The way I worded it makes it sound like what he is thinking is boring him. But it can be reversed if it is talking about the thread. In that way everyone is thinking that their own thoughts are boring him.
    3. It replaces the normal question mark with a backwards question mark. Which indicates irony but also acts as a question mark which is irony in its self.

    You went from sarcasm to irony.

    It's called the Irony Mark
    Used for both Irony and Sarcasm

    So now there is the problem of whether there is one or the other.

    Then lets stick with irony
    It is to show a deeper level of meaning
    Sarcasm could be considered a very minor form of Irony
