    The whole /s thing makes me sick. Just understand context, people.

      /a started to be used because the context can be so ambiguous. It isn’t needed when no-one would honestly say what was said. Unfortunately, the bar for that is so low now, it’s practically an underground pipe.

      It also removes the “it was a joke, don’t get so uptight” argument, when they get called out for being a racist prick etc.
