    Some other joker did the same thing awhile back, except s/he didn't use the snark tag, and some people, me being one of them, managed to feel a bit foolish for having taken the time to answer in earnest.

    As I asked another commenter below with a username identical to yours, was that you?

      Alas, that was me. But this time I was smart enough to add the /snark tag.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

        I should refrain from assuming a new user is asking a genuine question about the way things work around here, I suppose.

        I just try to be helpful. The first time the joke was on me.

        Now tonight the same person is back making it known this is amusing. Also fine, I suppose. I'm a sucker for good snark.

        Once the person started claiming to have understood how it feels to be the target of HR abuse, when out of 163 total comments here s/he has not received a single HR, it lost it's humor for me.

        And it is indeed amusing to poke fun at the petty drama that springs up around our brand of community moderation. I just don't expect it coming from a somewhat new user on two separate occasions.

        Perhaps I'm just importing my own early DK experience, when I was about 163 comments-new, into this particular instance here, tonight. I know I personally wasn't trying clown long-time users here into explaining the system to me, only to end-up telling them, "It was snark," and then proceed to do it again later on another occasion, this time admitting the pleasure in doing so.

        I'll assume the problem lies with me and leave it at that.
