    It's hard to convey sarcasm online. On the Internet, we don't have those important visual and auditory cues from a person, like tone of voice or facial expressions, but I was 90% sure it was sarcasm. Some people use /sarcasm or /sarc or /s or </sarcasm> .

    Poe's law is an adage of Internet culture stating that, without a clear indicator of the author's intent, every parody of extreme views can be mistaken by some readers for a sincere expression of the views being parodied. At first is was applied to any extremist viewpoint, but as you can imagine, with the current state of social discourse, Poe's law is becoming ubiquitous.

    Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, and other forums have even elected to extinguish potential ambiguities by removing many posts altogether. The deliberate and systematic extinction of opposing viewpoints is the only way in which we can all truly agree.

    But look at all the good information it produced! Grateful for the ask.

    Actually, you could of course build your own GOES-R ground station with 23cm equipment and receive the downlink. It's probably a huge project to decode the telemetry, but it's a hobby. I should work out the link budget though (Wallops seems to use a 9 meter parabolic antenna and an unknown peak TX power) - probably beyond your typical SatNOGS project :)

    PS: SatNOGS = https://satnogs.org

    You're exactly right. But doesn't this ambiguity make conversation live?

    This is a good approach still I speak (i.e. write) in old-style manner. This makes to think. As Henry Ford said: "Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it."

    Yep. People seem lost critical thinking. The communication degenerates to a standardized slogan exchange. Or even better: to "likes".

    IMO this is far no good. This is a kind of artificial habitat that has no connection with real world.

    Actually I stick with browsing SatNOGS site so wish to thank you for the link.

    Hobby is irrational. We invest money, time, and effort. Return on investment is measured with a pleasure.

    Yep, 9 meter dish will be definitively banned by my YL. The biggest dish I saw in private household was a 6 meters and it seemed huge; an EME'er nearby owned one.

    Yeah, that part was sarcasm, and I agree. No good will come of it.
