many people can't convey whether they are being sarcastic or not which confuses people. should there be a sarcasm highlighter with the bold italic link etc?

We already have one. It's called Alt+F4.

That was a test.
Sometimes you just need to figure out how each individual types to figure out what is serious and what is not. Or, as said, use typed tags such as /sarcasm.

You can just use the official sarcmark :D

e.g. This idea is very interesting, and I think it should be in AG3http://www.blogcdn.com/www.lemondrop.com/media/2010/01/sarcmark14-16.jpg

Uh huh. Well, the usage of non-standard characters presents a problem I guess. At least we'll definitely have UTF8 support for AG. Which means all those accented characters won't result in a jumbled mess.

As for conveying sarcasm, use tags or BBCode to your advantage. You can even state plainly that you are being sarcastic.
