French company Spotter has developed an analytics tool that claims to have up to 80% accuracy in identifying sarcastic comments posted online.

Spotter says its clients include the Home Office, EU Commission and Dubai Courts.

Wao! I can now tell that I have always been unintelligible... intentionally!

I immediately open a paypal account opened to all those who would feel grateful for the 2000+ lessons I offered for free on the gentoo forums, enduring the mockeries of the minus-habens (or is it minus habentium mockeries ?), lessons that have the real true power of propelling you into the elite which posts will stay in the 20% for the time of an eternity.

I am available (on my non free time) for extra lessons in case of any emergency need.

(Fees are similar to Spotter's : Minimum of £1,000 per month)

Have your posts in the 20% inaccuracy of Spotter thanks to the now famous aCOSwt's method
2000+ miraculous lessons for absolutely free !
+ Many many more non free (and less miraculous) : Minimum £1,000 per month!

And, why is this useful, one might ask? To more efficiently spy on everybody, of course. How can they tell when "the natives are getting restless" if they can't decrypt sarcasm.

Next they'll develop an algorithm to tell when the Germans are getting dangerous again and to force people to change their underwear.

So... what the Matrix, until now, couldn't figure out what you were saying if you only spoke in sarcasm?

Or if you completely mangled your grammar and sentence structure, like you just did.
