We’re starting to need /s for the real world.

There’s a thing you do on reddit when you say something sarcastically.

You put /s at the end of your comment.

Sometimes people don’t put the /s there when they meant it to be there and a little comment flame war erupts.

It’s all rather amusing.

But if you start thinking about the craziness going on right now, Trump, Brexit, fake-news, newspapers like the Daily Mail, satirical websites like The Onion, comments on websites and forums and such things the need for areal life /s seems like a good idea.

Or perhaps we could have a text or visual equivalent of the ‘may contain nuts’ since everything seems to be nuts today anyway!
