I apologize if there is already a thread about this, but I couldn't find one. Could someone please make a list of all the font colors that are currently in use? (Seinfeld, Airplane!, Sarcasm, Coen brothers, etc.)

I'm just getting a major headache trying to keep up :shock:

I think Coen brothers is some shade of blue.

What the fuck are you talkin' about, man?

The fact that somebody thinks they can come along and catch up on several months of in-jokes and esoterica infuriates me to no end. We work very hard to make newcomers feel confused and uncomfortable, and we'd like to keep it that way.

Actually, I'm not trying to catch up. I just want to have reference to the colors for when I want to chime in, instead of sitting here thinking "what the fuck was the coen color?" when I have a quote to add.

That's better.

Also, I believe that Fahnette designated orange as the emphasis color, though I personally find this unnecessary. ALL CAPS or underlining gets the point across quite well, in my opinion.

I started both of those colors after I said jokes from Seinfeld and Airplane! that could have been misconstrued as a legitimate insult out of a joking context.

Ohoh, I'm sorry, are we not supposed to post in color? I've been posting in color because after a while the black and white hurts my eyes. I'll refrain from using the pale purple if that's the case.

Sorry about that.

You're perfectly welcome to post in color. This system is strictly informal, so I'm not going to enforce it.

It would, however, be wise to remember that posting in certain colors may cause your post to be misinterpreted.

You gotta be careful not to post messages that could be misinterpreted.

Possibly homosexual. Must remember to investigate further.
Not that there's anything wrong with that!

I used it as a product placement color in the "Watchmen 2: Electric Boogaloo" thread

I'm kind of baffled by the color system. I mean, it makes sense that sometimes people can't tell if someone is joking or not, but I can't bring myself to use some kind of magic rainbow color system to indicate my sarcasm any more than I could ever use fake </sarcasm> tags (oh god every time I see those I just want to drive my car through someone's face).
