My apologies to CanadaexPat

I posted a response to that person in another thread that was meant to be light-hearted and funny. Unfortunately, it was not taken that way and the jury believed it should've been hidden.

I would like CanadaexPat to know that I am sorry and was only joking. To the alerter, my apologies as well.

1. FWIW, it was obvious (to me at least) that you were joking.

 

IMHO, you got a shit hide. Make sure you use -----> next time - for the sarcastically impaired.

4. You're right

That's the bad thing about the Internet, you can't really tell about what people's intent is with a post like mine.

3. One of the shortcomings of a hidden thread IMO.




The author should have maybe thirty minutes after it is hidden to offer an
explanation. But if all they want to do is use the opportunity to post obvious
snarc then they should be restricted for maybe three days or so.

5. That is a good idea.

There should be some mechanism to allow for an appeal, editing and/or redaction.

6. No issues, Quacker - the same thing has happened to me.

No apology necessary.

7. If only you'd used the sarcasm emoji

 

type a colon, then 'sarcasm', then another colon, no spaces, and you get this:
