From your post we might expect that people like you care about humans, when in fact, you care little about humans and are even willing to allow their destruction as they develop and are most vulnerable.
Or, alternately, from out of nowhere you fabricated a whole chain of unsupportable assumptions and posited it as the unquestionable truth.
From your post we might expect that all further postings from you will betray the same paucity of honesty and understanding.
But it does help underscore the irony of expecting someone who doesn't understand the meaning of 'ironical' to recognize his misuse of 'irony.'
If anyone wants to digram the post-modernity of that sentence, have at it.
