There are some words that are greatly overworked on Ask. Sarcastic is one of them. Rude is another. Hate, or hater, is yet another.

None of the following remarks may apply to you but they certainly apply to many posters on Ask.

When children and adults share the same web site there is sometimes confusion about what is said or what is meant. What somebody with a little experience would accept. as humour or irony, a younger person might interpret as sarcasm. When somebody has a different viewpoint to you, and they express it, they're not being rude and they're note being hateful.

Ask is a wonderful melting pot where kids can get in and mix it with adults and put their own point of view as strongly as they wish -- always keeping within the community guidelines, of course.

A lot of adult humour, the very best, I think, is very dry and it takes a little experience to understand it. Ask is your opportunity to learn that and to join in.

Lovely! Too often it's just miscommunication. We neither get to see facial expressions, nor hear the tone of voice. We're bound to misunderstand on occasion.
I'm glad you and I have figured out that a good old fashioned razzing is done with great glee and respect. I love teasing the tar out of you!

Yeah *sob* I know. Everybody is so MEAN to me. Even that Shooshie person told me I was ancient. It makes me feel so *another sob* worthless.

Truly wise words, oh Sage of the Downunder. There should be a similar statement for required reading when becoming a user of this site. Mods take note.....

Hi Zee. That's the first time I've ever been called a sage. :)

Not all sarcastic people are rude and not all rude people are sarcastic.

There are lots of rude and sarcastic people in the real world too.

Don't take anything too seriously, specially on a site like this. Have fun and learn as much as you can. The one's you can't learn anything from just disregard it. Paying attention to nonsense will only waste your time.

Can you tell me why my answer to a question isn't showing up? The question is a young man asking why his girlfriend always wants him to spend the night. I said nothing wrong in my answer, but it's not there. Have I done something wrong without realizing it?

I ask you here because I'm on the app not the site so I don't have all those fabulous links.

@Sedai - not sure why it's not working for you, when I click on it, it opens the correct page. If you are using the app, maybe try opening it in a browser.

@kaligirl - you have to sign up from the website itself, not through the app.
