    Therefore unless someone means that, I don't really think usage of it is appropriate.

    Have always used it simply as a reinforcer for sarcasm, which is often difficult to detect in forums. Whatever, if you see some malice, then I won't direct any towards you.

    No pity is different from sarcasm. See the roll eyes as a sarcasm thing, especially if someones just had a blonde moment. Use it IRL to that effect, usually with a smile on my face.


    No pity is for someone whos just having a whinge for no real reason after sympathy. The IRL equivalent is a kick in the testicles.

    Interesting, I never do - only time I ever roll my eyes at something is... well, yeah, when someone makes a stupid comment. Usually have a smile, but it's a contemptuous one, and usually accompanied by a headshake too.
