Apparently not, as I make sarcastic posts all the time, and almost nobody picks up on it or responds negatively. It's a matter of precedence. I've been here for all of 2 years (join date is a lie) and made a reputation for myself as a well-meaning yet very sarcastic guy among those who know me. You, on the other hand, are a relatively new member making posts that are somewhat provocative. Without a join date, post count, friends, or even a theme with CSS (yes, CSS is somewhat of a status symbol here; if you have it that means you're friends with someone who can use it), you're pretty much going to be labeled a troll.
But I like that part of you. Not enough cynicals around here lately. They're all banned or just plain gone.
Also, moderation and upper staff are not your enemy. I'm not sure why, but I felt I had to say that.
