You know I would love to know why you get marked down for being sarci about France.

And yet the other guy gets marked up for being sarci about America.

Me smells double standards, both comments should be taken as humour, or neither.

Personally I would have said some thing more along the lines of "The french choose striking as the favourite form of politcal pressure".

The first guys comment was decently worded, the second had "lol" printed in all caps. Why do you think he got voted down?

If you're going to make snyde remarks you have to do it with some diction, otherwise people notice it. Notice that my, actually insulting, comment about the French Revolution, in reply, did not get voted down.
