Internet Thug | Internet "thug?" No. Online Troll. | image tagged in internet thug | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Being one of the principal Flippers in that huge beef, I was a victim of alt-accounting/ DV abuse. I've had my ONE account since May 2015, and earned every single point I have. I don't appreciate cheaters. That seems like The Biggest Loser In The Room to me. What a lame way to use a (usually) FUN, hilarious website.

And now RAYDOG got hit with this bulls#!t??!

HELL naw. When your #1 contributor to your website is being harassed, that's when it's time to discipline. It's sad that we have this kind of behavior ON imgflip, tbh.... Tetsuo, Opan, and myself did some observation and investigation, and found a confirmed cheat and DV troll here. He goes by "renegade_sith," "d2renterprise," and "Natalie_Vance." For starters. We didn't even come up with ALL his accounts. But even with 3? That's 2 automatic upvotes for every meme made, every comment meme, and every comment.

That adds up pretty QUICK. And it's not a small number, people. And it's CHEAT-ING. This same lil [email protected]@rd was running around, causing havoc with DV-ing multiple people, effectively freezing their accounts. Not a damn thing was done. And that's WRONG. This user has now gone on, like nothing happened. F that; I want ALL of you to know who at least ONE of these lil fv(ker$ is. We even got screenshot PROOF that he had created alts to "battle back on these sonuvab!t(hes" during this DV crap.

Battle WHAT?? I don't know about Y'ALL, but I came here to imgflip to LAUGH; to enjoy Raydog's over-the-top, outta-bounds humor; to smirk at Johnny Cheesebag's hilarious stories he makes up. To crack up at DashHopes and Socrates quick come-backs on their meme comments. To smile at BrandyJackson, TammyFaye's, or Lynch's observational thoughts... Or to engage reallyitsjohn with friendly debate and local Arizonan humor.

To be honest? I've made a handful of political memes, but check out my feature percentage; you don't get THAT from making memes that piss people off. Is there a right-wing "lean" here? From what I've seen, ABSOLUTELY. So every once in a while, I've engaged a few who flew a little too far into the sun with some friendly debate that never got personal (until recently). I don't mind people expressing their opinion; but if you're just regurgitating neocon bull$#!t that is easily discredited, I probably confronted you.

I didn't come here for ANY OTHER REASON, but to trade jokes, appreciate others' creativity, and have a good time.

*gets off soapbox*

So, MEME ON, motha-fu([email protected]!

SOMEONE... REMEMBERS ME? | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I know exactly what happened. So get this, I have made the front page 5 times so far. That seemed to get the attention of the Imgflip headmasters. I got an invitation in the mail with a box of chocolates that said I was officially invited to an exclusive party for those who make Imgflip known to public with their best memes. The address to the party was a tad hard to follow, but I made it to a big house with a party going on. Is what I would say if there was a damn house at the address. It was just an empty lot. I followed the address correctly, I was sure of it. But upon further inspection, I realized there was a very tiny code on the bottom of the last number. It read 420420420, with an instruction next to it that said, "Read aloud f*ggot". I could not refuse a note that had the balls to call me a f*ggot, so I did as I was told. Nothing happened at first. Then, outta nowhere, a downwards stairway opened up in the middle of the lot. I dashed to the stairway, and looked down. The stairway led down a very long way, further then the light would shine. I hated the dark, and stairs, and walking, and my life, but I decided to continue onwards. The stairs took forever to get down, I must have been walking for 20 minutes, but it all seemed worth it when I made it to the bottom. I arrived at a huge underground dome, with bright lights, and a whole lot of voices. I could not believe the party. There was bouncy houses, champagne, snacks galore, and a big dance floor, complete with an electric disco ball. I was greeted by a chaperone who claimed he would show me around. He was a nice enough man who made me feel welcome in this alien environment, and he was patient with me whenever I stopped to think about life and it's meaning, like I often do. He introduced me to many notable men and women behind Imgflip's creation, and I was interested. Afterwards, he let me got enjoy the party. But he did warn me about the Dome's only rule. Don't ever, EVER, enter the backroom. So I just went straight for the beer and drunk until I vomited, then waited 30 seconds and drunk some more. I really threw down, and was having fun until I realized something. Where was everyone else? Raydog, DashHopes, JuicyDeath, and that bacon guy? I wanted to see them. Right as I was getting up to ask, a huge man sat next to me and greeted me kindly. We ate and chatted, until he looked at me seriously and asked if I knew who he was. I did not, then he claimed to be Raydog. I found that strange... TBC

I saw Raydog's face before, and I knew this man was not him. I told him about my thoughts, but then he interupped me and spoke with an imitating, stern tone. "Listen, and listen good. There is no other user at this party except for me, Raydog. I AM who I say I am, and you will take my word. Otherwise, I will be adding a little bit of cheese dip to the snacks tonight, you understand?" I said I understood, then he got up and walked into the shadows. A few hours later, I was eating again and trying to kill myself with the butter knife as usual, but I stopped and thought. Why would Imgflip try to pass off an obvious fake as Imgflip's top user? And why isn't anyone else at the party tonight? I had questions but after my encounter with that man, I was a bit nervous to ask the officials at the party. This led me to believe they were hiding something. And there was only one place here that could be harboring a well kept secret. The back door. I stuck to the shadows and avoided other officials like the badass ninja I am. Then I arrived at the forsaken backdoor. A million thoughts entered my head when I gazed upon the door. What will be in there? Dead bodies? Stolen Toyodas? Weapons for ISIS? Copies of Half-life 3? NUUUUDES? I got myself riled up at the though of free nudes and burst in to the door! To this day, I wish to God I never had. What I saw was too horrid to speak of. Not only was there no nudes, I did finally find the other users. They looked awful. Every one of them was trapped, hooked up to a horrible machine, or dead, or worse. Raydog, the real one, was locked in a dog cage, with dog food and all, being kicked and yelled at by an abusive man. DashHopes was standing on a pedistal, with chains tied to his ankles, and a clearly forced smile on his face. There was a line in front of him, where beginning users asked if their memes were good, and he gave his opinion. If he said he did not like them, he was whipped in the back. Socrates was just being dragged in, and as he pleaded for mercy, a huge load of wet, hot cement was dropped on him from above, effectively turning him to stone. Lynch was hanging limply from a noose, presumably lynched. JuicyDeath was dressed like Mario, with very tight rubber clothing, sobbing as the officials pointed a gun at him, demanding he start getting busy with a fat and hairy woman dressed as a furry. That "IWantToBeBacon" dude was dead on the floor, fried and covered in bacon grease. Then there was Renegade_sith. And Opan. TBC

And more of your friends and foes, BlackAttack, inside a Roman-style Colosseum. It was madness inside. Skin burned by torches, eyes gouged out, limbs hacked off by the cold steel of swords. Officials watched, cheered and threw money at the unwilling combatants, the teams fighting for their lives. After that horrifying but kind of entertaining display, I turned and saw a bowl. A huge bowl. With the name Johnny on it. There were a bunch of fatasses with nachos at hand demanding to know where the cheese f*ggot ran off to. I had seen enough. Though I wanted to see where that porn film of Juicy was headed, I ran out the backroom, tripping on lightinthedark's bones on the way out, and out of the Dome. An alarm sounded behind me, and the stairs began to close as I ran up them. Luckily, I'm fast as f**k, and jumped out the stairset to find my eyes briefly blinded by the sight of the sun again. I ran back to my house and looked under my bed. There, where I left it, was my sacred box of Dank Memes. I pulled out a weapon of mass destruction, known to the public as DAT BOI. Little did they know, if you spin his unicycle in just the right ways, you can turn dat boi, into The Dankening, an extremely powerful firearm that fires pure Dank as a devastating explosive that can level cities.I grabbed some other special homemade weapons, and I ran back to the lot, which was now guarded by huge men. I pulled out Rick Harrison's decapitated head and threw it into the middle of the lot. The guards quickly reacted and fired bullets at the head, just as I had planned. Rick Harrison's head morphed into a pawn shop after being shot, and the pawn shop imploded into nothingness, bringing the guards with it. The stairs were gone now, so I pulled out my trusty diamond shovel and pickaxe, and dug down until I found myself within the Dome. I was quickly spotted, so I had no choice but to pull out my downvote grenades, and throw them at the guards. The grenades exploded, lowering the officials point count, and making them sad to the point they killed themselves. I ran to the backdoor, and opened it with a Tommy gun, blasting away, killing every guard and official in the room. I accidentally killed a few users too, like ghostofchurch and some unpopular users, but oh well. I unhooked every horrid cage, machine, locked contraption, and led the users to the way out. When we made it back to the surface, all seemed well and good. But it was not. TBC. Last time, I swear.

For you see, nobody was themselves anymore. Their time inside the Dome changed them forever. They would walk back to their jobs at Imgflip tower with no more love, knowing what they were working for. Some just decided to end themselves and delete their account. Others turned villainous and would attack other users, hoping to kill. Imgflip would never be the same after that day. The day of Memeaggeddon.

I agree. Most of the alts here are paid political trolls, but there are a few butthurt ones that it would affect. On other thing they could do would be check an account holders activity. If they rarely post, rarely comment, but have a ton of downvotes for certain users and a ton of upvotes for certain users, those are usually the alt holders.

Easy on the self-righteousness. It's a fact that there are paid, political trolls out there. It's been going on for centuries, even before the telegraph. Many were called mudslingers for a reason: before the internet, paid instigators would attend stump speeches and literally sling mud at the speaker. Happens here and those with opposing opinions do all in their power to shut them down. Happens a lot on social media. Ask any of the political posters here and you'll see the same thing. Just look at their submission to feature rate.

The topic here, however, are memes that are not political, but humor: a mainstay of this site. In particular, Raydog. He got political when he first started but switched to humor because it was well received. No him and a few other leaderboard members are having the same problem. Their memes are being flagged and downvoted by jealous people too lazy or stupid to create void memes. I don't get laid for posting memes here. It's a mental exercise I use for writing gigs. I've used a lot of my material here for such.

But one CAN post political memes WITHOUT being a paid agitator. Just like the overwhelming majority who b**ched at their congressmen in town hall meetings weren't paid protestors. They're there because They HATE the crooked lying sumb**ches! To paint ALL those who protest as paid political agitators and trolls is ridiculous! I know I don't need to get paid to call out that douchebag Trump, his crooked cabinet, and all those ignorant minions who voted for him thinking he would do anything to help working people like them.
BTW, I didn't vote for Hillary either.
As for memes, one can post political memes AND make them humorous.

But not all are paid. Butcicwoyld wager to say that the majority of alts for political posting are paid trolls. One reason why you see so many new posters pop up during election times.

I have NO alts. I am me, and me alone. I just started on IMGflip 2 weeks ago. up around 19,000 points at the moment. Im not a troll. I DID have to listen to right wingers whine and b**ch and moan with their lies about Obama for 8 years. But now Trump is pres, the righties don't wanna see political posts about HIM. I seriously doubt that "MOST" protesters are paid, nor are "most" political posters paid. I would say that MOST just cant stand one side or the other, and post accordingly. And if some ARE being paid to post, whoever pays them isn't getting their moneys worth, since the vast majority of them suck. I seriously doubt that there are many paid trolls at all. Has ANY political post EVER made you change your mind or vote? Hell, the TRUTH wont even change peoples minds these days. You can prove beyond any doubt that Trump is a liar just by going thru his old quotes, and what do his supporters say? "They ALL lie, but Hillary is the WORST!" They don't have evidence, they believe any BS they see on Breitbart or Fox despite clear and verifiable truth to the contrary, and they STILL wont change their minds. Trolling on a meme page is a piss poor way to get anyone to change their mind, much less be worth paying for.
Fact is you don't have to pay people to diss a politician they don't like. It comes natural. But I notice the right wingers vehemently DENY that there are any paid right wing protesters and trolls.
However, if anyone is being paid, it would be those wh go to a demonstration or protest to DELIBERATELY cause trouble, start a riot, trying to discredit the demonstrators. You can BET that is what happened at Berkeley a couple weeks ago, when a peaceful demonstration was invaded by a couple busloads of people dressed n black, wearing masks, and started throwing smoke bombs, and breaking windows and such. I doubt they were paid, and I doubt they were there to protest that Milo Wankovich guy. They were there to cause havoc and make the demonstrators look bad. And I doubt anyone had to pay them to do it. THAT kind of thing has been going on for decades, and was a favorite tactic of the Nazis in Germany in the 20s and early 30s. and nobody has to get paid to do it.

Welcome to the internet. You noticed that Berkeley incident as well, I see. Not new. Recent history, look at Occupy Wall Street. The right loved that photo op of the guy taking a dump on the police car. Think he was there to protest. The cops watched him do it. Tell me money didn't change hands. Or something. I'm well aware of the agitators and their motivation. This goes back decades. It came out years ago on Usenet. Pass around those anonymous emails that proliferate, and some one will step up to dispute it. My early journalism training in high school taught me to confirm sources. It was always hilarious to debunk a story that the poster said was confirmed by Snopes. Some would post a link that would lead to an article that would actually debunk it.

You're right, there are a lot of people that don't get paid, but the few that are don't really on one account. Take 100 political posts here from different accounts, and you'll find about half of those accounts are owned by a handful of people.

As you point out, you've been here two weeks. You read a mention here of treaty. That came about because of some of the paid trolls. You meme or comment, and you get an error message saying until you improve your commenting status, you can't meme comment, just like a noob. So you comment on this, and go to comment elsewhere and suddenly your commenting a lot, wait 20 minutes to submit a comment. Doesn't matter if you're commenting on another Meme or not. Here, you have to wait to comment or reply on the same meme, which, if you ever make page one, will find its hard to do.

I know why the political posters do it, but you'll find multiple accounts in several of their names. The reason this particular meme was made us because some non-political person decided to take down Raydog by downvoting his posts out of submission status. One only needed an NSFW tage, but the other was hilarious. Why so many downvotes? Just like the political poster tries to silence opposing views, this person(s) upset because Raydog is good at entertaining people. He's had several posts that got downvoted into oblivion by these trolls that see his humor a threat to their posts. Instead of posting funny memes, they think they'll make front page by keeping him down.

I go through several pages of Latest several times a day. At 14 memes a page, and constantly updating, it's still hard to get a half of a page of decent, upvoteable memes. Harder yet, finding one worth commenting on.

Oh ive been on the internet for decades, first posting in newsgroups.
And I actually made the front page on a pie chart I made my first day on IMGflip with an all black pie chart called First World Pie Chart Problems, now at over 37,000 views and over 300 upvotes.
I read about the downvoting troll, and ive posted several comments mentioning that we don't really need downvotes, since they can be so easily misused. Either upvote it or don't.
Most of my political posts are either comments on someone elses political meme, or a new post in response to a particularly virulent and viral falsehood going around in other's memes. And of course, there are some Trump memes because he is so EASY! LOL
By far though, MOST of the political posts ive seen here are from right wingers! One day last week I saw a couple left wing posts, and the righties started complaining the place was being taken over by libtards! :D
And yeah, most of the latest posts don't seem very good or funny at all. To tell the truth, I wasn't very impressed with Raydogs posts for the most part. Most of them seemed to be old jokes, and/or not very original/ and or not very well thought out. But that's just my opinion. In the 2 weeks ive been here, ive downvoted only 1 post, because it was a particularly ridiculous, egregious, outright political lie. Don't even remember what it was exactly, but it was really bad!
Im here to have fun, maybe see a few good memes, post some of my own. I try to be original, and witty, if not outright funny. im sure not here to change anyones political opinions, or troll for money. And since theres no money in being on the leaderboard or front page, those things aren't all that important. Nice if it happens, but it aint why im here. Im just waiting for 20k points so i can post 3 memes a day. Only 1700 points to go! : )

Old jokes have their place. This is one of them. Raydog built up a good fan base, which is why he's popular. Consider how many, and outright vicious, political memes were on here well into last month, he was a breath of fresh air. Most of the political memes were trolling for liberals.

It's like buying a new car and having someone key it because they lost their license for too many DUIs.

Sorry, it goes BOTH ways.

The concept is so high school anyhow. Which Molly Ringwald am I? The dork or the cool?

Alts also serve to upvote, a fact folks are curiously neglecting to complain about here.

True, a bit of a contest may inspire participation and creativity for some who aren't in it just for the fun.
But instead, let a meme go up based on views and comments.
Problem? Flag it.
Let the mods mod,
And the memers meme.

Give children a zap gun, they gonna use it.
Take that power away, and instead of this silly concentrating on a popularity game nonsense, folks can concentrate on their own memes on this meme making site and enjoy themselves.

I've seen the treaty meme and signed on to that, heard people getting trolled including you. From what I have read, alot of the functionality of imgflip is algorithm based. My thoughts (which I haven't shared before) are there should be no user(s) on imgflip who gives out more than three downvotes a day. A three downvote limit per day, just like submissions. A downvote timer like a comment timer is another idea I read somewhere. I would be happy with no downvote button at all and a flag limit/timer I think DragonAdult said he would ask the owner of imgflip about how to combat this, I am in favor of your IP idea but there are easy ways around that. Red_Dragon and Troll_Smasher are allies but only can fight what they see. I agree the solution comes from imgflip, I'm fine with any changes they implement. Don't expect a mod to see this and be the one thing that sparked a change, but users emailing to [email protected] may help get a change.

I hear you. The downvote limit could stem the flow but I believe it would take a lot more code and could be abused if you've got 10 accounts administering 3 downvotes a day.

Let's see... apartment complexes that run their own internet service (like mine), dormitories, employers... There's a lot more subnetting & NAT than you might think, resulting in quite a few situations where there could be multiple users per external IP.

I agree, there are other ways to combat trolls using IP. Imgflip has done this before with a user.

YES! They should totally do this!

There's a Star wars site I use that limits users to one account PER HOUSEHOLD because they had a similar problem with people making alt accounts.

The only downside is going to be multiple siblings/roommates per household.

Great meme Dazzzer. :{D

Also, if everyone in my family used proxies, we could have about 60 accounts between us, if the max account limit was 10. So that doesn't work very well.

I hear what you're saying at the same time don't forget where the traffic comes from that makes this space desirable to advertisers.

They'd spend a he'll of a lot less time adjusting the code for login than dealing with complaints about the same issue

I've had alot of upvotes taken away from old memes. I mean like from 70plus down to three but I didn't notice it in my overall totals. Im not sure if much of it is going on in the current postings. Its to hard to keep track of for me anyway.

Good idea - but there is a problem there; that being ISP's using DHCP. A good # of imgflip users could potentially rotate through and get the same IP address, if they happened to live in the same general area/town. Still not a bad thought tho.

Absolutely a virtual private network would counter this and could be obtained for free.
If you're willing to go that far I don't think any measure would suffice. This would be a deterrent like anything else but it's better than doing nothing

My solution is this:
For every 10,000 point (to 100,000) you get 1 vote up or down to use daily. (total of 10 for 100,000 points)

After 100,000 points you get 1 for every 100,000 points.

Problem solved.

That's not a lot of upvotes, which means 10,000 points would be a lot harder to get. How about just limiting downvotes on comments?

Yes ....It's time based though so even the most vile scumbags can accumulate points. In this case here, your actions would Garner points which would translate into votes. Much more fair but same principal.

i have been thinking about this and it really is simple, DOWNVOTES SHOULD COST POINTS. this means an account with out points cant down vote, and i'm pretty sure it would stop a lot of necessary downvoting that happens just out of spite.

100 - points per DV and that WILL fix the problem

Yep. Just so a pig like you can roll the fv(k around in your slop, Renny. Nobody's buying it anymore.

And we effectively destroyed your reputation, as a consequence for what you did. You HAD to be held accountable SOMEHOW.

But now? Everybody knows, it's out in the open, and they're all discussing it.

And by they way, "Nat;" even if we're wrong about YOU, you're still part of the problem and not the solution. You're not wanted here. You're offensive. You're ignorant. And you're racist as fv(k. And you just MIGHT be the next person we out as a "renegade" imgflipper, if you'll excuse the ironic pun... *smile*

"Dear."

There is no need for punishments. You cannot "destroy" anybody on this website, only make them madder, and by definition, Imgflip worse. I think if you were to stop downvoting Renegade, things would get better. And no, he does not use alts to downvote everyone, just to help himself after everyone is spamming flags and downvotes on everything he has. His comments are always "low rated, click to show" when nobody against him is. Please try to understand. I've been getting shit as well because others could not see where I was coming from.

Another? Far as I know most white women either openly or secretly want the D. Lmfaooo

But in YOUR case? I'll take a pass. A HUGE, hell no pass. "Natalie."

And just something to reconsider, since you're STILL kinda slow and didn't catch on, yet. If you KEEP doing what you're doing, you'll get the same treatment your main account renegade got. That's not a threat. Wake up. Open your eyes. That's REALITY.

I'm sorry. But when they take a look at just THE MEMES you and (pretend woman) "Natalie" made, they'll have plenty to work with. You're delusional if you think otherwise.

What you've "contributed" here has been pure garbage; Hate. Prejudice. Insensitivity. Crude. Offensive.

As far as WE can tell, you're a negative presence here who violates the TOS here constantly.

And you think WE'RE worried??

No mod presence? You are mistaken. All memes with a new template and gifs get checked by an actual person (vs. the auto moderator). The mods can be slow, and they rarely go on comments, but they are there. https://imgflip.com/user/acuity12 Check out this mod's profile for an example. Doesn't seem like he's promoting trolling at all to me.

You haven't been getting "harassed" by me in weeks, you lil liar. You were NEVER harassed by me. Honestly? You think I went on DV raids like YOU? I don't CARE that much about you. You're a loser who cheats a friendly meme-making website. You're a constant negative presence on imgflip.

What can I say dude? People HATE you. It's YOUR fault. So grow a pair, stop whining about imaginary offenses that didn't happen (just like your pal Trump does...hmmm) and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

You know.... like a fv(k!n GROWNUP. What a waste of oxygen and life....

You want all this stupid argument nonsense to stop? How about stop replying to them. You keep feeding 'em so they keep responding, you get mad so you respond.... It's a cycle. And you can stop it. That goes for you, renegade_sith, natalie_vance, and tetsuoswrath. Also, responding to renegade and Natalie in this childish manner certainly doesn't stop trolls. Active troll fighting doesn't work. You have to do it passively.
