I liked the old Imgflip. People were nice and kind and nobody gave two damns if you even had a political opinion. People just didn't ask.

We just need to let it go.

The political memes have really hurt imgflip. I downvote them if they aren't funny (which most aren't)

Imgflip does have TOS, and I've seen a few that were in direct violation and flagged them, most are just moron chest beating.

I made this meme yesterday, but it doesn't seem like many saw it.

It'd be nice to be able to filter out the political crap like we do with GIFs or NSFW.

You are absolutely right. The political memes brought out the worst in people. Heck, even I can't say I'm not keyboard mashing my political opinion on somebody's post every now and then.

I think we need to spread the message and regain what Imgflip used to be- a funny place of social interaction that separates us from the real world for atleast 15 minutes, not one that spreads separation into the world.

Hope I helped.

Thanks. You've stated exactly what my meme said. Otherwise, the only choice for now is to start flagging them as NSFW because politics does not belong on the workplace.

Then on the other hand, I guess the right thing to do if you don't know is to stay out of it, and if you do understand, stay out of it because the likelihood is that that person you are trying to convert to whatever political standpoint by screaming like a 6yr old on C.O.D is just further enraged by the constant reminder.

I don't usually troll them (big evil grin) but I've found the mental midgets that list politically but are clueless will usually jump into the vile name calling quickly. When that occurs, I just flag the comment. By the same token, though, I keep my writing style calm and as factual as I can. I've been called a good debater by people that are willing to listen, Even if I don't convince them. I know when I've done that by them agreeing to disagree.

But to get rid of the political nutcases, they have to be quarentined. Best way is get the filter, they lose their right to annoy.

Why would you say that? The right to exercise free speech is not infringed upon. It would be available to anyone that would be interested in political posts. But anyone that chose not to View such posts would not have to be concerned. If a political meme showed up in someone that tries to filter out such things, the flag function would alert the mods that it needs the filter tag. It works well with NSFW posts. If I see a post that is outside of the TOS, say, for example, nudity, I can hit the flag button to alert the mods that the post is in violation of TOS for nudity. It then falls on the mods to determine if the post be removed or just flagged. I did that a few weeks ago to a post that had a bare breast. I wasn't offended, but because a woman's breast in our society is considered "obscene" (rolls eyes) I felt it should be marked as NSFW. I even noted that I wasn't offended, I believe the term I used was "hubba hubba" but not suited for office environment. I have a shopped picture of me with several bikini clad ladies, and when I use that template, it automatically gets flagged NSFW. Why? Read the TOS. I don't use the flag indiscriminately, but judiciously. Again, up to the mods to make the decision.

Flagging comments? Disagreeing with someone in adult manner, stating your case, Backing it up with facts, is a good way. To be profane and threatening, however, is not. Most people do not do that in real life, because if they try they often end up with a bloody nose. Here, there is the TOS. Technically, if I call somebody a poopyhead, I would be in violation.

Remember, this social media is a private business. It can restrict or forbid certain things, as they point out this is not a porn site. Nor is it a political site. It's a site for fun interaction. They separate the NSFW posts because some people are offended. Likewise, because the political posts are often found to be offensive, they, too, should be marked so that those not wanting to deal with that subject here do not have to.

There is no "good way". There is no "offense". It's just some idiots wanting a power play. See, I just used the term "idiots". Is it a badword? Am I a badthinker? Or an unperson?
Fascism only exists because of people's ability to be "offended". It's the foundation upon which all evil is built. You would not have any violence or oppression if someone wasn't offended by something or someone in his life. It's a disgusting term.

If you understood the word, you would not be so swift in its usage.

Fascism would censor all views opoising it and push their own agenda on you. I go through the latest featured memes more than the hot memes. That means I see many political ones that may never make it to page 99 of the hot memes, but there are many that do make it to page one.

If you look through my memes, you'll discover a few political ones. Would I ask to be exempt from a function I am trying to get initiated. I believe the tags are already on them that state they are political. Some have done well, better than many of my mainstream memes, but would I be upset if I knew my meme was filtered out because it fell in the political category? No, just like it doesn't bother me if one of my memes gets marked NSFW.

No, a fascist cannot bully me. They've tried for two decades. You're welcome to try. But please, when you use a word, make sure you know the meaning of it.

"In political terms, we would call you a fascist." As we are talking about politics, it sure twads like you've called me a fascist.

Since so many of the political posts here are negative, often abusive to those with dissenting opinions, it would fall within the TOS for flagging and removal of the entire post. This would lead to a flame war that would eventually destroy the integrity of the community and the site reputation.

Without a form of filtering out these posts, political meme makers have a bully pulpit that they can use for cyber bullying. The best way to handle that is the ability to ignore their posts. It's the only civilized weapon available short of total censorship, which, as a business, imgflip is within their rights. As a business, it will be up to imgflip to Make the final decision concerning the ability to filter out these posts by the users, but the posts would still be available for those that like that sort of thing.

Okay, I knew you would pull this, so I made sure to put "not seriously" in parenthesis after that sentence. But of course, you pulled it anyway. Smh

Anyways, cyber bullying doesn't exist. Any preface to the world bullying makes it non-existent. Like existence bullying, where the mere existence of a person or group annoys you so you have to end it. Like what fascists did.
And ignoring a post isn't flagginf it. And flagging something, the very concept of "insults" is the ofundation of all evil in the world. How many lives could've been saved if people wouldn't be so damn upset over mere words. Millions? Tens of millions? Who can say.

Had to back up because we'd reached the end of the thread.

One trait of cyber bullying is to make broad, sweeping statements in an argumentuve fashion opposing the the subject thesis. These arguments are rarely backed up by fact, or, when a source is provided, it is usually a questionable source to begin with.

Cyberbullying has occurred for much of the last century. It started with telephone harrasment. It goes beyond calling and asking if your refrigerator is running: then you better go catch it. No, it goes beyond that which is why there are laws on the books about harrassing phone calls.

It would behoove you to do some actual research on the problem of cyber bullying. Here's a good place to start.

"Nearly 43% of kids have been bullied online. 1 in 4 has had it happen more than once."

You see how ridiculous this is? Cyberbullying is just nasty words online. It does nothing and you're alway a mouseclick away from ending it instantly. You're spreading weakness around by indoctrinating children into believing that words can harm them.
You are evil.

Does cyber bullying exist? Yes it does. How do I know? Because I've been targeted. Notice, target, not victim. The difference is I know how to handle myself. The last attempt worked out poorly for the bully.

In most forums, it's easy to avoid these bullies with a block function. Of course, the truly mental ones try and find their way around it. On Usenet it was a little block poster command, much like a spam filter. Had one that didn't like being ignored, so consistently did a Nym shift. Why? Because he had something so important that everyone must hear it.

Cyberbullying occurs online. I'm a target because I stand up for what I believe and deal in facts. You have not been able to prove me wrong. I attempted to see if there was any certified data on your position, but only found blogs with no data to back up their rants of ignorance.

Opinion is not fact. It can lead to the discovery of fact, but until it's proven, it is still opinion. So far, all you've provided is bullshit. Nktice, for examole, you chose to attack me? Did you believe I would succumb to your rants, attacks, and pisspoor attempts at bullying. Child, I was dealing with bullies when tour daddy was still swimming in his Daddy's sack.

Does cyberbullying exist? Yes it does. Until you can prove it, you need to go tell your mommy that mean old man on imgflip was yelling at you.

"Because I've been targeted."

Which presupposes that it exists. Who am I dealing with here?
"Does sin exist?"
"Sure. I know because I've seen sin myself."
Yeah no shit. I've also heard gojvbisau, because I've seen gojvbisau and experienced it. Thus I proved its existence, right? Brilliant. What if I told you that I've studied gojvbisau for years? Would you believe me then?

"Opinion is not fact."

Exactly. And what's been asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence. It's your job to provide evidence for oyur assertion, not mine to disprove it. OYu have yet to even make the case for cyberbullying existing. All your arguments thus far presupposed it existing. "The bible is real because god is real."

"Does cyberbullying exist? Yes it does. Until you can prove it, you need to go tell your mommy that mean old man on imgflip was yelling at you."

Would that constitute cyberbullying? Or what are you trying to tell me with this?

Someone has lit the fuse on your tampon, today. Ooops, did I do that? :D

I didn't pursue psychology as a career, but I, nevertheless, became acquainted with it in college through two required courses: Human Behavior and Psychology 101. They've helped me through varied career. Oh my, does that suddenly make me one of those educated elitists? Still, it helps give me insight into the reports I read, or at least some understanding.

Sorry, but your opinion doesn't hold water. Until you do the actual research, which I outlined for you on how to do it, including the need to get the grants to pay for it.

O may not be an expert in the field, but I keep a good grounding on a variety of fields. When I needed open heart surgery in '08, it wasn't my GP that did it, nor even my cardiologist. It was a cardiovascular surgeon that was at the top of his field. Many others passed because of the high risk.

When my Jeep needs work, I do what I can. General care like oil, tire pressure, etc. I even replaced the broken window by talking with an experienced expert on doing that. But when I had to have a front end alignment, I took it to a pro.

I write on many subjects, although humor is my focus. Even then, I have to be prepared to keep that in track.

I understand research. I know how to do it. I have to rely on experts. For example, why do cyber bullies do it? In real life bullying, it's been traced back to low self-esteem, often involving abuse from an authority figure such as a parent or babysitter. Cyberbullying, OTOH, has not been able to trace it back to self esteem as of 2010. I know that when attempts are made to cyber-bully me, it usually turns out that the perpetrator suffers from delusions of adequacy.

Take your own diatribes. As I seem to have to point out to you, your entire belief that it doesn't exist is all you have. You can not point to one bit of scientific research to back up your claims. Do you even understand the core concept of scientific research? Even in a young science as psychology, there are standards that must be followed. Before you apply for that first grant, you have to have a working plan. Your hypothesis: cyber bullying does not exist. How do you intend to prove that? How will you have a control group set? Your professor can help you with handling the details. This includes having someone reproduce your research and that it matches your results.

Until then, your belief that it does not exist is just ignorant blatherinh

It's hilarious when I meet someone like you. Clearly no one ever asked you this question before: "Does cyberbullying exist?" Because it seems you are simply unable to answer it. Instead of admitting that problem with your worldview, as I would, you people do this weird... shift and blabber on to hide your lack of understanding; And in the end you convince even yourself that you're in the right.

"I understand research. I know how to do it. I have to rely on experts. For example, why do cyber bullies do it?"

Tell me, why do sinners sin? Oh, you disagree with the concept of "sin"? Prove that it doesn't exist.
You see how that works? You have created an entire worldview aorund the idea that "offense" as a concept exists, so now you defend it.
I could never understand why people do this. It's irrational.
I do not care about experts or your own credentials. I do not care what a priest has to say about the nature of the universe, because I am an atheist. I don't care about the minutae of socalled "cyberbullying" when the concept in its entirety is complete and utter hogwash. I don't care about what the believers have to discuss, even if they spend centuries studying their holy books, if I don't share your faith.
Do you finally get what we're talking about? Or are you gonna shift again and assume another irrational stance? I'm down with both. I love it when my inferiors do their little dance.

"Anyways, cyber bullying doesn't exist. Any preface to the world bullying makes it non-existent."

Your words, and now you spin with this, in quotes no less,

""Nearly 43% of kids have been bullied online. 1 in 4 has had it happen more than once.""

I'll assume you are citing a statistic from an article that is contrary to your hypothesis that it doesn't exist. You offer no proof to back up your claim that it doesn't exist. Funny thing is it's been proven by experts to exist. So far the only thing I've found to back your claim are blogs and tweets. No research. Just uneducated opinions by those that would choose to be bullies themselves. Actual research shows it does exist. It falls under the heading of mental abuse.

As a writer, I know power of words, written as well as spoken. Facts are something that bullies cannot tolerate because it removes their power over others. In disputes, their lack of facts for opinion shows their own ignorance. They are nothing more than mental midgets with Inferiority complexes and need to seek help from mental health professionals.

Oh, and the bullying Isn't just young kids. I've dealt, and fought, cyber bullies, literally, for decades.

No, you're going to have to probe it. I suggest, if you graduate high school, study psychology. I'm sure there's a nice grant out there just waiting to see the results of your study to disprove that cyber bullying doesn't exist.

Until then, I'll pay heed to the experts in this field.

"Funny thing is it's been proven by experts to exist."

"So sir, you are a cyberbullying expert?"
"Yes that's right."
"Just so we're clear - does actually cyberbullying exist?"
"ehm... sure. I mean I'd be out of a job if it didn't, right?" *laughs nervously*

You are way too constrained in your thinking. How about you think outside the box for once: If 43% of people are victims of cyberbullying, is it real? Or is it just calling someone names and some idiot being offended (which is, as I've already said, the underlying emotion of all evil in the world)?
And what you're doing (also as I've already said) is the mental abuse. You've convinced people that offense as a concept is real, so now they believe it is - so anyone in the world being offended is entirely your fault. Think about that.

"As a writer, I know power of words, written as well as spoken."

You know nothing. The power of words is the information contained within them. If someone calls you and tells you that your wife just died in a car accident, you would be hurt. He has essentially just hurt you with words - but it wasn't the words "wife", "died" or "car accident" that hurt you, it was the information they contained. There is no such thing as an "offensive" word, there is no such thing as "offense". And there is no such thing as "cyberbullying".

"I've dealt, and fought, cyber bullies, literally, for decades. "

And Don Quixote fought windmills, what's your point?

"I'm sure there's a nice grant out there just waiting to see the results of your study to disprove that cyber bullying doesn't exist."

Why would I want to disprove that it doesn't exist? I am saying that it doesn't exist.
Or did you mean I'm supposed to prove that it doesn't exist? Yeah that's right, I am supposed to prove a negative. How delightful, you don't understand the first thing about science and are still trying to talk down at me.
It's your job to prove it exists; And for that, you have to go above the realm of human emotion. You have to prove that words themselves contain an inherent power to offend and that it wasn't you and your ilk who mentally abused children for decades to the point where they believe that "offense" exists.

One example: Calling a white man a cracker doesn't offend him. Calling a black man a ni**er will offend him. Is the white man inherently superior? Or did you weaken the black man to the point where he can be offended by words?
This is the case with all offensive words. Objectively non-existent.
