Basically, last night, ThumpLeaf said that The Nitwitting was horrendous and actually gave him physical pain. I then replied to it, not even trying to make fun of it, was basically like “is that even possible?” And basically thought maybe he was just exaggerating a little. The next morning, he was like Oh, so I guess you can just decide how my body reacts to cartoon episodes. Yeah, that’s cool. (Which you probably could tell was sarcasm) I was basically like “...crap...” as it basically made me feel bad about it for hours. I wasn’t trying to offend ThumpLeaf. I was just stating an opinion. And I was sorry if I did offend him. Later that day I told another user about it on Discord, asking if it was even possible for a scene in SpongeBob to do that. At first, I didn’t think it was a bad idea as I kinda wanted a second opinion still. But then I got a message about it again about ThumpLeaf. It got me pretty embarrassed again. I then decided I had enough and seriously regretted posting that message. But then, there was this thread. https://spongebob.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:768736 I knew he was referring to me, and it made me feel worse. That’s why I feel like the bad guy. It doesn’t help I get embarrassed kinda easy. So that’s basically what happened. It actually kinda ruined my day. I am not the person to mock anyone. Oh, absolutely not! I seriously am feeling like the bad guy. I know what I did was wrong, but I had no idea it would go that far.
Are you good at picking up other people's sarcasm? I'm a very sarcastic person in real life, and people don't always understand the obviousness it, which isn't a bad thing. It sometimes can be frustrating, but it's never a bad thing.
I could tell he was being sarcastic when he said “Oh... so you can decide how my body reacts to a cartoon. Good to know!” I honestly could tell in the inside he was like “What the heck is wrong with you?”
I think he's just a little upset that you took the phrasing and wording so literally. He meant it as a joke, and you were genuinely and innocently concerned. So I understand both sides of the challenge here, and I think that just talking it out fully would do both of you guys good.

I could tell from the messages. You want to push through, but quickly want to resolve the issue without haste. I understand. You're not the bad guy, just someone who misunderstood something and now it's getting blown out of proportion a little bit.
Exactly. We're all here for one common reason, and with that we are able to share our ideas, opinions and knowledge with one another. The more drama that we create, the less enjoyable this place can be. I think now, this can all be behind us =D
Before anything gets too out of control here, I would like to say that I think it would be a good idea for us to stop discussing this. We're all entitled to our own opinions, and it's perfectly fine if you feel one way or another about an episode.
