* Due to lacking an ability to demonstrate tone, it's a poor idea to try to be sarcastic on the Internet. There are stories of people getting banned from several online communities for sarcastically stating something that's against the Terms of Use, the most famous incidents involving "I am twelve and what is this?" when you need to be 13 or over to make an account. This was the original reason PoesLaw was formulated, and a frequent source of examples. It's also the main reason you can find a SarcasmMode pothole on most pages of ThisVeryWiki.
