Are My Facebook Posts Obnoxious?

The messages that started this post were a few of the comments I received. I know most of them were meant to be sarcastic because only my family, where sarcasm is a dominant gene, and friends, whom if not connoisseurs of sarcasm don't last long, are my friends on Facebook.

Tag away on pictures of my wonderful cooking, my kids' fashionable clothing, or my home decor, but for the love of Pete, please do not take+upload+tag a picture of me with crazy bed head and disheveled clothing! Why do I even have to ask this?...more
