comment Do you hear “snarky”, to imply some level of wry, off-the-cuff, perhaps mildly acerbic, humor?
@KristinaLopez Thank you. I've never heard it used for anything but human responses, so that's new. As Sven Yargs says, it's clearly being refitted, evolving fast. I won't use it in anything but personal conversation now, so between yours and his I've gotten what I came for. Thanks to you both.

Thanks. I hadn't heard anyone using the older senses I found, seems local culture is using a milder form than found elsewhere -- I've never heard it used for responses lacking all humor. Those are just "mean". I suppose you could accurately say there's sarcasm in every use I've heard, but there's no acerbity in friendly needling. And I can see how that'd be a local usage not likely to spread. Anyway, thanks for the wider survey than I'd taken.

Plus, it's got the "lead with" idiom working, "lead with" as in "offer first".
