Just when people are shown how ridiculous their positions are they they no longer want to talk about the issue at hand and start complaining about sarcasm and tone.

Kind of like the people who feigned mock indignation over Swift's suggestion to eat Irish babies rather than addressing his scathing critique of the treatment of the Irish.   

What really gets me is that I wasn't even being sarcastic. Guardian just sensed something he didn't like about my comment, couldn't describe what it was, and settled on "well you sounded sarcastic so you must be a feminist."

Sarcasm : strongly made point that I don't agree with.
