Wink "Tongue-in-Cheek" Tags and Other Funny Faces (split from another thread)

I'm looking forward to doing this with my own child. It's all natural and doesn't involve any harmful chemicals that are sold to line the pockets of big pharma.
I think you need to add the "tongue-in-cheek" tags around this...

Re: From The Atlantic: "ADHD, or Childhood Narcissism?"

In all seriousness, is it actually important that I do that? (im not so technical) If so, I'll figure out what tags are and I'll do it.

No, there are no formal "tongue-in-cheek" tags. (Would be useful, though!)

But there are a number of members who tend to take things rather literally, especially when deadpanned as well as you did, so I was hoping to point out your intent before you got any "hate mail".

Re: From The Atlantic: "ADHD, or Childhood Narcissism?"

I don't follow. I think I lack the technical sophistication for such posts...

No, I think the 50 subsequent posts should get across the point that it's sarcastic. (< insert winky face here)

Re: From The Atlantic: "ADHD, or Childhood Narcissism?"

We're so far off topic that I don't know if it's worth trying to rerail the thread.


Steve, when you click reply or quote, you'll see a bunch of the little buggers
on the right side of the response window. Just click on one of them and it
will move it's little hiney over to where you left the cursor.

Re: "Tongue-in-Cheek" Tags and Other Funny Faces (split from another thread)

Not to fear! This tangent now has its own thread!

Discuss ADDF emoticon use and real or imagined tags to your hearts' content!

(Hating on -- eh-hem, I mean, "critiquing" -- ignoramuses who write about ADHD can be directed to the original thread...)

Re: "Tongue-in-Cheek" Tags and Other Funny Faces (split from another thread)

I got an amusing suggestion- a five point scale that notes the level of sarcasm. The facepalms or "doh" will be the currency. It's an expression of sarcasm in itself

Sarcasm level: 3 facepalms out of 5. Because the sarcastic eyeroll looks too happy to be sarcastic especially with some of the ignorant articles from the "experts" like the New York Times . looks like that expression you get on your face when you are lightly saying "oh you" and get the quirky smile going on. says it all, we need the "doh" to have eyes that get really big and then eye roll, and the mouth needs to drop open in total annoyance and then the facepalm happens which will show the eyeball veins and go down all the face or something.
