Okay, then it's me who's wrong, but I certainly like earnesty and humour being neatly separated. I just like to know what's up, a joke or something serious. Joe, thing is that I don't know how to talk to you. It feels incredibly futile to me.

: "Joe, in your post you apply to being earnest and wanting earnesty, but in the same time you mock around, trying to be humorous but failing to amuse me and others. That's why you feel incredibly absurd to me."

: Let's see. I am both earnest, and I try to bring a sense of humor to my posts. And this makes me "feel [sic] incredibly absurd" to trablano. So one should either be earnest or humorous, but certainly not both. What ridiculous advice.

: Joe, wondering where all these humorless whiners come from.
