An interesting assessment of sarcasm as a speech act. Not familiar with
that feature of its use, nor with the basis for your belief.
Alas, the form of the speech act was not my question, but rather its nature
Nothing in what you quoted in any way pertains to bowing or scraping. It
is, of course, always significant when one reads such meaning into
statements lacking the language and intent.
