No you aren't - but think you are. A disparity between reality and fact - irony.

It's about, as as the OP I get to decision what the thread is about, working with these concepts, trying to figure out there useful purpose and when it's harmful.

I think that scarcasm and satire are useful for pointing out hypocracy and delusion in public figures and systems. When it devolves into attacks on individuals it is harmful for both the attacker and the victim.

I'm sorry to say that I use scarcasm towards individuals when they are (in my opinion) particularly obtuse about their own actions. It doesn't help them in any way but I do get to feel superior for a moment. It's not good for me.

And even your purpose in the OP, and other's interpretations, and even my response..
None of any one of us has to have the entire answer.
Discussions are Amazing like that.

I like being part of ATS.


I save sarcasm as much as possible as part of my scorpio sting.
Instead I use playful questions or gestures or stances..

How do you determine whether or not what you consider "playful" is received in that manner.

People love me for it.

And I am making fun of myself at the same time.
I might be the most ridiculous person I know.

I wish I could show you in person, haha.

I'm basically always happy.
Ok, I have a comparison.
It's like flirting, while making fun of myself, while wanting to bring out the other persons energy or point.

OR

I don't have to be right, if I can let you be right.

Doesn't work too well in print - need the tone of voice and body language to pull that off.
