in thread how to unicode filenames?

What the person posted here was.

i.e. "the one person A (me) thought was especially good" was thought to be among the worst..."by person b.

It's like Worf believing that prune juice is a warrior drink, when it is more often associated as a natural laxative more often used by the elderly and infirm.

He held not just a slightly different view of something than the people around him -- but VERY opposite -- something for a Warrior.

Definition of irony:

irony/ˈīrənē/
Noun:
The expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.
In this case the person posting was doing so more for emphatic effect, but it was still humorous, that I need to explain this, reminds me of Picard attempting to explain humor to Data.

In case you were wondering, that's also an ironic statement. *stiffled giggle*

    LOL!

    Worf is a warrior, so whatever he drinks, is by definition a warrior drink

    The laxative effects are extremely exaggerated, and the juice tastes like plumbs (great).

    he expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite ... that I need to explain this, reminds me of Picard attempting to explain humor to Data.

    Only one problem, it did not signify the opposite, ie it wasn't ironic.

    You think the article is great. autarch thinks the article is bad. Your Mother thinks the article is bad. Your Mother uses autarch's comment to emphasize just how bad the article , without calling you stupid.

      Only one problem, it did not signify the opposite, ie it wasn't ironic. You think the article is great. autarch thinks the article is bad.
      Now you are just trying to screw w/my head (or else you are dumber and anyone ever thought:

      You just said "I think article is great, autarch (whoever they are) thinks the article is bad. How is great != the opposite of bad?

      Do you really believe bad isn't the opposite sense of 'great'?....

        Are you now trying to say you think the article is bad?

        That still doesn't make Your Mothers comment ironic.

        Nice try at turning the tables.
