Do you guys feel we should keep the sarcasm off the postings? Some people
get offended.

I am not aware of any sarcasm police we can call on but the subject is
covered by various 'netiquette' guidelines where it always discouraged. I
don't know what to tell you except if you wish to encourage someone to alter
the tone in their future posts, by all means do so.

Yes I for one do.

It is entirely reprehensible to be in any way sarcastic or
condescending to people who in all innocence and with no clue
whatsoever decide to overwrite their PCs without reading the
instructions or warnings first.

These people are VICTIMS and it is our duty as voulenteer responders
to be as poilte, helpful and supportive as possible in order to ease
the pain and loss suffered by the unfortunate victims of an ill
advised upgrade.

Also we should give all possible aid to those confused as to how a DVD
is burnt from an ISO file and should scour the net to find suitable
drivers for the various hardware problems, and if possible e mail said
drivers, fixes etc along with hand written full instructions in very
simple language directly to them.

One day we will all be rewarded in heaven and maybe even get MVP
status.

Irony is much bigger and cleverer, outright abuse has its place but
sarcasm is just plain lazy.

I think it is group mentality where if some one walks into the middle of a
conversation and is not caught up, he or she gets flamed. And the
discussions have been on for a while.

Perhaps my ironic reply was a bit too subtle?

You are right my friend ... perhaps if I wasn't getting old and bitter.
Sarcasm is just a kindler way of being scornful.

Hey Mario I think you are being far too subtle here, irony totally
wasted on most people, I guess thats why its so much fun.
