Hmmmm:

irony 1 |ˈīrənē, ˈiərnē|
noun ( pl. ironies )
the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect

sarcasm |ˈsärˌkazəm|
noun
the use of irony to mock or convey contempt


As my intention was irony, not mockery, I think you must have misunderstood me due to unknown reasons or my poor english has lead you to misunderstand. And the above tells me that I was at least attempting irony, not sarcasm ... whether you understood this or not ... whatever.
