Good old ideas revisited

I think I had the idea to use special chars for the sarcasm quotes gesture, and that's two ^.

Like: it's a ^brilliant^ idea. It's stronger and more arrogant than "normal" quotes.

I still think this idea will completely redefine the whole internet.

So, if Master_G says it's a ^brilliant^ idea, is it brilliant?

You suck. That sentence surely conveys just the opposite of what you intended. You should have put ^s around your whole sentence.

Didn't we decide a little while ago that single quotes make things sound rude?

I don't think it works like that. It's more of a negation operator, so if you put them around a normally negative word it becomes a compliment.

^^ is already the same as **. It's just a BOLD notation prior to the new fangled internet with its actual bolding and underlining and emphasis altering of textual presentation.

~tildes~ were adopted as smarmy emphasis long ago. So a few old grey beards will remember that was meant as sarcastic. But that fell out of general practice when it was noticed that the whole medium of the internet text world is significantly sarcastic.
