3. Socratic irony.
4. dramatic irony.

This is irony.

If someone gives a the game a second shot but does it in a time frame that is not to your liking...this isn't ironic. If people think that KOTOR online is gonna be better than STO because to them STO was a huge...REDICULOUSLY bad game with little to no redemption....THAT is not ironic...

If someone doesn't like something you do, but likes something relatively simular alternatively....THIS IS NOT IRONIC!!!!

And this you may end up calling it for spam purposes...isn't ironic.
