Quotation marks mean you're quoting exactly what someone says, and they look like a sideways equals sign. So there should be paraphrase marks that look like sideways approximate signs

@matt this makes the quoted text look like it smells bad.

@clayote Even better. It's not a trustworthy source of information, I think it *should* smell a little funny

@matt by that logic you can use »» for exaggerations and «« for diminutives

@matt somehow these feel more like "sarcastic quotes" to me. Which also would be a good thing to have specific typographical elements for

@matt (the quotes I used in my previous message were not sarcastic)
