A pothole to make it clear that a statement is honest and genuine, although it's in a context that could have it easily mistaken for a sarcastic comment or joke. Say someone gives a suggestion, and people respond with "I think it's a great idea!". Since that comment can be ''both'' genuine and sarcastic, this is a tool to help people know you are being genuine.

The reason for this can largely be seen in PoesLaw. Some people actually don't know if others are being sincere or sarcastic a lot of the time, especially where text isn't as emotive as necessary to convey the sincerity properly.

The CounterTrope of SarcasmMode, for when a statement intended as sincere is in a context that could have it easily mistaken for a sarcastic comment or joke. To compare: [[SarcasmMode Yeah]], ''[[SarcasmMode totally]]'' [[SarcasmMode useless]]. [[SincerityMode I think it's a great idea]]!

[[MoodWhiplash Ow, my metaphorical neck]].

Can be used to clear up confusion where text isn't as emotive as necessary to convey the sincerity properly. Contrast SchmuckBait, where traps are worded as sincere warnings against falling into them.

In some instances, this can even be a trope in a work, when a character is usually sarcastic or snarky, but then they get moments where they mean what they say.
