How exactly are we supposed to tell that was satire?

Satire translates rather poorly on the internet.

Satire is always nuanced if it is well done. Here it should be obvious due to:

1. The timing with the new rule for entry into a pro field in national events and backlash on this site.
2. This would require lower level rule changes on selecting cards.

Some will always take satire literally, that can't be helped. Daylight savings time is proof of that.

One of the best things that ever happened to me was when my wife looked at me and said "You're not funny. Quit acting like you are." I think of that a lot while reading DGCR.

The cold hard fact is 99.9% of us aren't funny. We might occasionally have a funny exchange here and there, but in general this stuff gets more annoying than it is funny. We would be better off just talking about golf and enjoying the occasional moments when someone is accidentally funny.

Dude who uses a satire disc golf course doesn't appreciate satire disc golf posts.
