'[OT] Assessing tone of textual conversations'

Catching up on my Slashdot, I ran across this:,70179-0.html?tw=wn_index_2

For those who haven't seen it, it's somewhat interesting.  Basically,

someone else in the study using either a serious or sarcastic tone to
describe one of several common topics.  The recipient was then asked
to determine the tone used.  The recipients thought they were right
about 80% of the time, but were, in fact, only right about 50% of the

Something worth thinking about when emailing or, say, posting to a

Disclaimer - Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the disclaimer! That's right,
the disclaimer. This American apple pie institution known as parental
discretion will cleanse any sense of innuendo or sarcasm from this email that
might actually make you think and will also insult your intelligence at the
same time. So protect your family. This email contains explicit depictions of
things which are real. These real things are commonly known as life. So, if it
sounds sarcastic, don't take it seriously, if it sounds dangerous, do not try
this at home or at all, and if it offends you, just don't read it.

Well, just for the records then, I'm sarcastic most of the time.  In a fun
way, of course =)
