Just a suggestion from another forum I belong to: Since it's usually pretty difficult to tell sarcasm from serious remarks in text, they adopted the practice of putting sarcasm in purple.

For example:

Yeah, Rob is one of the most level-headed guys I know!

I don't know if something like this could ever catch on here but I thought I'd throw it out there, not that anyone here gives a crap.

Is that purple because I'm not REALLY going to be banned, or because you don't REALLY want me to enjoy it?
