Sarcmark: Sarcasm punctuation is a great idea
January's, 2( : 55 PM
We mold have done who one in the headline
A US company has launched a new
punctuation mark which is intended to express
sarcasm in written form.
They claim the sarcasm mark, or Sarcmark - an
open circle with a dot in the centre - is needed for
sarcasm to work on the web, or in print.
Mer being downloaded [for . 33} it can be
installed on computers and mobile phones -
allowing people to use it in text messages or
emails.
A spokesperson said that using the Sarcmark
means never again waste a good sarcastic line on
someone who doesn' t get it and could make some
websites make a lot more sense.
We think it' s a wonderful idea. , we could
have added one just there.

There already IS a sarcmark, it's the upside down exclamation mark.

Sarcasm is implied, you don't tell someone your being sarcastic...sigh..

True. But in face to face conversation, you can subtly imply that you're being sarcastic with your delivery. That's lost in type form, so a lot is lost. It's tough letting people know you're being sarcastic in type.

That being said...yea, it's really gay to just come out and say "Hey, here comes some sarcasm!!!", because that loses a lot of impact too.

The whole point of sarcasm is that the other person is supposed to pick up on it, no? And if they can't, you up the sarcasm until someone else notices, and laughs with you!

SarcMark = pointless marketing scam, which some "hipsters" will buy and use until half the stuff on FJ is about SarcMarks being old (i.e. Twilight?).

i think its a good idea, i cant tell you how many times ive made an obviously sarcastic remark only for the other person to take it seriously and us have an entire conversation with me thinking it was sarcastic and the other person think it was serious and then meet them the next day and talk about how i was obviously lying and then being like WTF?! I WAS BEING SARCASTIC

This is a stupid idea, if you need to use a symbol to express sarcasm, you're doing it wrong.
