    Sarcasm is a form of irony; it is intended to mock, tease or make fun of something, it is generally slightly cruel in some way.

    Irony does not need to attack or mock. Irony can just mean there is a space between what is said and the intended meaning.

    If it was I in the middle of a terrible rainstorm and I said, 'lovely weather we are having,' this would be ironic.

    If I really hated your haircut and I said, 'Your haircut is amazing YoYo, you must tell me where you got it done,' then I may be being sarcastic, as I'm mocking and being cruel...

    @Carlos: your so cruel, why do you hate her haircut?

    hehe, what i just wrote is often a problem with sarcasm in china, if one don't get the sarcastic comment right, but still reply, the follow up discussions often did not read the original post anymore.

    So people who like to provoke often 'want' to misunderstand sarcasm to spread confusion, specially important on WLIB with all the trolls here ...
