  • Sarcastic answers are annoying. It's likely only funny to the person that wrote it. I think it's bad cause it seldom contains anything constructive for the person who asked the question. However like MorbidPrincess94 mentioned... sometimes really troll-ish questions need a few sarcastic answers for full effect. But serious questions and sarcastic answers shouldn't be together. I really try not to give sarcastic answers. Sometimes what I say may come across as that but in reality I never planned for it to be sarcastic.

What Girls Said 11

  • Both. When a person is being deliberately dense, I figure he/she has it coming. He/she opened the door, I'm just walking through. I don't care if my answer is annoying or irritating to others, because I'm that kind of a person. The issue for me is, did I find myself hilarious? Probably I did. Probably I cackled as I typed. *I* was entertained, and isn't that what's truly important? (YES. Yes, it is.)

    When a person is truly asking for advice or another point of view, I will respond sincerely. But people who are unrelentingly good-natured and without a shred of snark annoy me. I'm sorry, but there you go. I find it irritating because most of the time people like that are firmly seated on their high horse, looking down upon those who dare find levity in the gravity of everyday life. Those people make me want to behave badly and say outrageous things purely for shock value. I can picture them clutching their proverbial pearls wondering just what the world can be coming to . It is said that sarcasm is the last bastion for the slow of wit, but I heartily disagree. There is little better in life than witty repartee and I see nothing wrong with having a little fun at the expense of others- so long as I am able to also poke fun at myself- which I am. The glaringly bland earnest types do nothing for me but draw fire.

    Some of us are sharks... and everyone who's not is wearing meat-pants.

    • I've seen some people who believe they're right and everybody else is wrong, and if I say they're wrong, they think the same way about me.

    • Blackwaterhattie, your second paragraph is great. I'm wondering if you're a Hax reader?

    • I have no idea what that is. I gotta Google it!

  • Since you can't relay tone over the internet, there should be a smiley or some obvious indicator to say it's sarcasm, otherwise it could be really damaging.

    I don't like being sarcastic on here unless I'm dealing with someone willfully ignorant and I'm super-obvious about it.

  • I find it funny to read sarcastic answers to dumb questions. If the question is not serious then I don't give a serious answer.

    • Most of the time when I am sarcastic,it's actually unintentional.And the last thing of me being sarcastic is to hurt people.I am sarcastic because I care as I just don't understand those hurtful things that people do.

  • No, I don't give sarcastic answers. If I don't like the question, I will just ignore it.

    • It is trolling. It's because you get points for the answers you give, and sometimes the answers are supposed to be helpful. It's because the points you can be traded for monety items. They'd go broke if people kept on trolling.

  • Is this a sarcastic question?

  • I do sometimes act sarcastic when the answer is obvious, but people are refusing to accept it. I don't even mean to, it just comes naturally.

    There are some people that answer everything hatefully and sarcastically and sometimes it's just unnecessary. After seeing every answer be like that from someone, I tend to not even give their advice any consideration anymore. It's the same when someone answers everything with a "I'm so much smarter and better than everyone" attitude.

    • What about anonymous users, or do you just not accept anonymous users?

    • Oh, I can point out a few people you just referred as smarter and better than everyone else. They will deny it of course, but it always comes back in the way they answer many questions. Sighs.

      I think they just had too many bad life experiences which made them like this, so we can't really get mad at them.

    • I allow anonymous answers, no real reason not to.

    • What if he is actually the most sarcastic out of all of us...

    • I didn't see those three dots...

  • I prefer to give clear, concise, and to the point answers; it is kind of interesting to read some of the other sarcastic answers though. It adds variety.

  • I almost never give sarcastic answers. I try to be honest and to the point. I think that's the most helpful type of answer. Sarcastic answers can be funny sometimes, but they rarely help the asker.

    • I don't have a problem with sarcastic answers, because most of the time I can see the hidden messages within. It's like the Matrix. What, I do have a problem with is stupid racist remarks. Other than that, it's all good.

    • Sometimes offensive answers are sarcastic and don't answer the question. Other times, I can't figure out sarcasm unless there is a smiley. Another thing is that answers are meant to be helpful, and sarcastic answers sometimes don't help the question asker. Sometimes, not always.

  • Dumb questions often deserve the most sarcastic answers.

  • I enjoy sarcastic answers because they can be funny and make light of a serious situation, although you can't always give them because people genuinely come here in need of help and we have to be sensitive to that.

  • I do, when I read silly questions or obvious questions like "what does it mean when he says he likes me?" Then in my brain for 5 min I keep going on about how oblivious can you be and then I try not to be a jerk but I end up answering sarcastically just so they see how silly there question is... Lol now I just avoid dumb questions haha

  • Sometimes I just can't help myself if the question is too dumb, but I try to restrict myself, because it's not very polite. Many times I've found myself waiting for someone else to give the sarcastic answer so I don't have to.
