Is it just me or does it seem like *most* people, for whom English is not their first language, do not pick up on sarcasm very well. I understand that it's often hard to know for sure in writing (on the Internet) - but "*most" of the time, most Aussies, Brits, Canadians, and Americans pick up on it, when others have a hard time recognizing it.

Folks, I understand the literal translation issues from one language to another, I'm asking if it's a cultural thing. So far it doesn't seem to be. But I could have done a better job wording the question differently.
