I don't know what's sadder: that people are going to pay $1.99 for the thing instead of adopting a free convention like the tilde on our boards, or that none of us ever thought to sell our "sarcasterisk."

I was describing the board's use of the sarcasterisk in an e-mail to someone this summer and they googled it before asking me what I meant found it listed on UrbanDictionary.com as well as here.  As far as I can recall, I think (?) that I was the first one to use the appellation on these boards when I was struggling to describe it to others, but I don't know if someone else had done so during Westeros Block.

So the tilde is a unique convention to this forum?  Drat -- once I figured out what it meant, I loved it so much I've started using it other places too.  (I thought it was just a new convention that I was slow to pick up on....)  I even "educated" other people on it.

My email recipients are probably very confused....

 Hey, I'm all for spreading it as much as possible. Without tildes, I'm sure I make considerably less sense.

Yeah, I don't know that it's unique, but I see it here far more than anywhere else. By all means, spread it. 

"'Cause knowing is half the battle!"
