    saying "she was clearly in the wrong"?

    Those responses?

    •  the downthread response made it clear (0+ / 0-)

      that the upthread one was not snark. jesus, does anyone read the whole thread when commenting?

      •  No one has claimed it was snark. (0+ / 0-)

        The people defending doc2's comment, including myself, have been saying not that it was snark but that it was misinterpreted.

        The response "she was clearly in the wrong" made it clear that the phrase "in her defense" meant that the teacher was speaking in her own defense, not that doc2 considered what she said to be a defense of her behavior.

        Was there a different downthread response you were talking about?  I did read the whole thread but I may have missed something.

      •  wait, I see what I missed (1+ / 0-)

        I didn't think "satire" was meant to mean "snark", but on rereading I think you're actually right.  Okay, retraction: Sparhawk is claiming it was snark.  I don't agree.
