nuance.

occasionally it becomes obvious in communication here that it is difficult to convey some subtleties in meaning via the typed word.

many times i wish to suggest irony or sarcasm or hyperbole into a commentary to, well, please myself mostly...but i get the sense that most of the nuance gets lost in the stark blandness of the blog.

and i strongly resist the temptation to use emoticons or other ways to add meaning.

i guess i`m hoping that some will sense the ironic or dryness of humour or sarcasm without further prompting.
