When written at the end of a comment, "/sarc" indicates that the writer has been in "sarcastic mode," informing the readers not to take the comment seriously.

The term is a parody of HTML codes, in which one exits a text format by putting a slash in front of the style type. Thus, to stop text from being bold, one would code "/b"; so (humorously) to exit a comment that has been sarcastic, one writes "/sarc."

It's all a load of socialist utopian claptrap and they need to move to Geneva!"

"The only reason that the U.N. is completely ineffective is due to a lack of funding.

As the world's lone superpower, America is morally obligated to donate at least 30 percent of our GDP to help make the world a better place. That kind of cash infusion would also help increase the General Assembly's budget for drugs and hookers.

Give peace a chance."
