I agree with you. I don’t think they are funny, amusing, refreshing, or have any other redeemable attribute. Ditto for cat videos.

most ppl like the ones that insult "the other side" and they label them as funny. the ones insulting "their side" they say are not funny. all are just annoying to the majority.
reply
1 up, 2 replies
The folks you describe are totally the majority of people, unfortunately. The percentage of politically oriented memes featured and the percentage of politically-oriented memes on the front page proves this.

The memes I personally find annoying, are the stupid trendy ones like "da wae" and "cash me ousside", but you don't see me running around complaining and claiming everyone thinks like me. Because guess what? If they did, then that garbage wouldn't be on the front page, now would it?
reply
1 up, 1 reply
that doesn't prove politics is the majority it just means ppl into politics have big mouths. its just like how every show has gay ppl in it. gay ppl are the vast minority. but hollywood wants to promote that its like 1 out of 5, when its more like 1:100. doesn't mean that being gay is the majority. just proves they have the loudest voice.
i don't like those trendy meme's either. but they are just here for a few weeks or months. then they end. the politics just don't end. the election is over stfu already.

Listen Chief, I happen to agree that 95% of the political memes are neither funny nor clever. I just know better than to expect anyone to stop doing something because it happens to annoy *me*. The fact that half of the memes on here are political may not be indicative, but the fact that they continually make it to the front page, is.

Also, you'd have better luck getting porn out the internet than you would getting politics out of the internet, especially these days.

I just hate to see you spinning your wheels, babe. Keep calm and scroll past, y'know?
reply
1 up, 1 reply
I'm glad we agree that 95% of political memes are not funny. also know that since this meme made it to the front page means many others share my opinion of politics. (complete waste of time). you yourself can confirm that many times you have seen a funny meme on this site and scrolled past it, without giving it an upvote, or comment. yet a political meme in favor of your side will surely get an upvote and or comment. am I correct? hence comments and upvotes being the reason political memes make it to the front page, not because they are the majority. I agree with you that me whining about political memes will not eliminate politics from imgflip. however, well I have no however. . . I want a change. that doesn't mean I expect a change. I realize nothing will ever change.

thanks for calling me a babe. (i have been working out) "keep calm and scroll past is good advice. have a nice day. :-)

Now, I realize it's only my opinion, and my opinion and a dollar is worth the dollar, but I think the only type of meme that is less funny and more annoying than a herp-derp political winger meme, is a meme that complains about other memes and says "boo hoo, stop doing that, it's annoying" or "why doesn't this site conform to my vision of what it ought to be".

And yes, about one out of ten politically oriented memes are actually clever and funny and they get an upvote from me, regardless of who or what the object is. If you really look, that percentage applies to the entire site. 9 out of 10 memes are just dumb, period. Political or otherwise.

Maybe you should take a week, and hang out over at lolcats.

I'm totally over it bro. you like some political memes. I think they are all pointless. lets you and me be unlike every other disagreement on the internet in history. lets just agree that each of us just has an opinion. lets agree that 95% of political memes are stupid and not funny. lets agree that no one should get up on a high horse about politics (or anything else) and lets agree we should make funny memes.

thanks for the congrats on the front page meme. and. ya politics, or anti politics, gets ppl riled up for sure!!

thanks for the info on lolcats!

hey bud I pretty much almost completely agreed with you. why you still ragging on me? it was just a meme. and i made it to the front page. first time for me.
keep calm and scroll on. never heard of lolcats.
0 ups
I don't know. Why are you still on me? All I said was; Not *everyone* hates *all* political memes, and who are you to tell people what they should make memes about? I wasn't disagreeing with your point as much as your delivery. I don't like dealing with people who are up on a high horse. Hurts my neck.

Congrats on front page. Seems anything having to do with politics (including complaining about too much politics) gets people riled up.

lolcats is a meme site that deals exclusively in sickly-sweet, dripping with cute-ness, "awwww..." inspiring cat memes. It's where "Can I haz Cheezburger" originated.

Also, your link there is to one of *your* memes, not mine so... no clue what you're referencing. Anyways, are you sure it was a meme and not just a comment?

How is that complaining? I was actually trying to get on the front page by following the trend. "CISCO knows da wae" with a picture of a 500 Series Wide-area Application Engine I thought was pretty damn clever. *sigh* Nobody gets me.
reply

the tittle says wtf is da wae. sounds like a complaint.

and ya I don't get that meme at all. never heard of da wae. barely heard of cisco. I hate computer stuff. and yes I see the irony in that.

also I just checked and there is no politics on the front page. maybe my meme got thru to a few ppl. maybe it didn't. cant say for sure. but hey the front page speaks for itself.

People use memes as subliminal messages broadcast into your brain in an attempt to change your political views and force their agenda on you.

People haven't stopped talking about politics since the 2016 elections started! TWO YEARS AGO!

It would be better if the mods could ban, and delete any political memes out there, to bring peace, joy, and fun back into imgflip!
reply

Actually banning political comments would be bad, because it would stifle free speech.
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
since when does imgflip have to uphold free speech? many sites out there ban political comments. its a private company and has every right to filter what they want. you agree to their terms when you log in. sorta like a bartender refusing service to someone who had too much to drink. the bartender does not have to serve everyone.

yes!! crickets sound. . . CAUSE I'M RIGHT!!!!! but really my point was not to change the terms and rules of imgflip. just to help ppl see that politics don't matter. which I realize wont change ppl or their opinion. I was just trying to shed a light of truth and speak for those who don't even want to bother talking to "political types" (cause there is no point) and show them that arguing politics on imgflip is pointless. if I help one person. all my struggle is not in vain.

If you want peace and joy why not come back at political memes with non offensive humor? Oh yeah, because to people who clamor for censorship everything is offensive.

kinda kicking myself at this point. I've spent a bunch of time on imgflip arguing with complete strangers. for what? a bunch of worthless points? also I'm not offended by anything. just annoyed. after the last guy got elected no one was bashing john mcain for the next 2 years. this is the worst post election whining I've ever seen.
