Question About Compliments

Question from Shorty

If someone gives you compliment but adds a sarcastic negative remark, is it still a compliment?

I was told that I would reach my goal – it may take awhile – but I’ll get there.  Was that extra stuff really necessary?

Anyway, this person called himself being positive and encouraging, but there was always a condescending remark thrown in with almost every statement.  That really messed up the moment.

So, I have to wonder: if someone gives you a compliment but adds a sarcastic negative remark, is it still a compliment?
