I respectfully submit to you, that your time would be better spent upvoting and commenting on the memes you like, in an effort to encourage more of the same. I do both political an non-political, maybe if the political didn't get way more views and likes on average, I might do more of them.

I don't mind the political memes and different points of view are welcome, but when people are calling each other names, it's too much. Like it says, be respectful.

When mods set the standard of lack for respect, then that particular TOS gets thrown in the crapper. I've stopped posting here because of that.

Wrong. Conservative memes tend to insult the entire leftist group, liberals and, on occasion, progressives. Trump memes pretty much stick to making fun of trump.

True, I see attacks from both sides, but it seems that the conservative side seems to have the lion's share of attacking a group. Regardless, when I see an attack like that, I simply flag it and quote the TOS. They usually disappear. Everyone needs to do that.

What else was it supposed to be?
But you said such was wrong, and yet that assesment itself was wrong.

Been here awhile. Flagging, TOS, DV's haven't made any of that disappear and I tend to like triggering the worst of them, their dancing being more entertaining. To date none of that has stopped or eliminated whay I've said.

"count the types of memes featured. In 2016, most political memes were hate filled memes, aimed at those that didn't support a certain candidate. Most were false claims, and when pointed out, the poster would immediately fall into name calling, and, on occasion, threats of physical violence. (isn't the anonymity of the internet wonderful) You could down vote it, even flag it, but the mods were too busy supporting the original poster."

Contradiction.
Clarification.
Confusion.

"...because this, IMHO, is not the forum for that."

Personal opinion based on a personal preference has no bearing on the TOS.

Bear in mind, an opinion attacking anyone, even conservatives who you alledge to be the main culprits in this activity, is a TOS violation.

Still waiting for a reply.

And further clarification on how you are getting attcked by the mods as you so claim.

I did look at some of your memes and comments on them.
You asked for the mods to explain when a memer is penalized for violation of the TOS why it is an violation. Yet when one was offered by a mod, you called it an attack and trolling.

Exactly. I see a political meme and I usually scroll past because I know that there's trouble ahead. If I do add a comment it's because I know my facts on the issue and if it gets to name calling...well... I've been known to throw some elbows...

I've been in a few of those. Soon as the name calling, and even threats, occur, I hit the flag button. Mods, being what they are, ignore it.

Those political memes are mainly one-sided absolute bigotry, attacking the other party. They also say the other party isn't living in reality, where I bet these people aren't even watching the news, and seeing the reality! IT HAS GONE TOO FAR! This, as you can see, is a clear breach of Imgflip's terms and conditions, because I am here to have fun, AND I'M NOT HAVING FUN WITH THESE POLITICAL MEMES! I am just asking for cooperation with the site, and users, to take down these political memes, and ask to bring peace back to this site, and to start having fun again, instead of letting it get taken over by stupid politics! It is time to stand up, and banish political memes on Imgflip, and make this site fun, and truly, great again! STOP NOW WITH THE POLITICAL MEMES!

Actually, it's certain commenters who are the ones "attacking", calling others names and so on. And people will do this even if the main meme isn't political, if something triggers them.

Banning political memes is completely stupid, however. Most other memes tend to mock or make fun of something. Political memes are the same, except the topic is politics. You can either ignore them, enjoy them, or challenge them.

And have what? Two weeks of the same boring stolen legos memes? ThenTide Pad/Pods? < See that, I don't even know. Know why I don't know? Because with my advanced model computerizationated gadget, I can so something called "scroll past"

Violation of what rules? What next, religious ones too? Flat earthers? Hit me up with votes so I can hit 2 billion by ths afternoon? There are butthurt troll snowflakes - OOH THE BAAAAAAAAAAD WORDZ - for every issue, even, yup, My Little Bony.

And what "other" party?There's more than those two bungling puppeteers that are really only one but con these drones into thinking this is a fight to the dearth while they get rich off these plebs.

Me? I troll trolls, the "both" sides, SOMETIMES SIMULTANEOUSLY ON ONE MEME! And the morons are so busy trying to out pee pee me, they can't see that just above I'm doing the same with their opposition. I even sneak in proof for THEIR position at times or even outright blatantly AGREE with them just to see if they're paying attention. Which is never.

If not watching these stalwart KingOfTheAntHills fall over themselves isn't the funniest shit you ain't ever seen,

then

just

scroll

past.

DONE.

You're welcome.

they tell us not to attack anyone about opinion which counts political memes because people attack others about political opinion. I didn't really make that clear. oops oh well :P
reply

Political memes aren't always opinion based, they may simply be referring to facts. In fact, most will like to think that what they are expressing is factual, no matter how ridiculous. Same goes for responses. Look at Trump and the current political climate. A third of America 'thinks' reality is a lie made up by CNN, while taking his insane tirades as fact.

Further, memes with other themes often express opinions as well, and thus will inspire opinions to the contrary.

When does expression of a differing pov become an attack?
What if sarcasm or banter is taken seriously?

Rules are one thing. Defining is another. Enforcement is a whole other can of worms.

Terms of service: under conduct:

"Conduct

In any content that you create or modify while using this website, do not discriminate against any sect, commit or condone illegal acts, advertise, harass others, or otherwise make it less fun for other people. Imgflip is a place to be creative and have fun! While Imgflip highly values freedom of expression, please express your opinions in a way that is kind and respectful to all people of the world, or if stating your opinion does not follow these terms, please keep it to yourself or post it elsewhere. Memes, comments, or other images whose sole purpose is to attack a person or group of people in a condemning and non-humorous way are subject to deletion, and the user account that posted such content is also subject to deletion. In particular, please be careful when authoring content around sensitive subjects such as politics, religion, and race."

Every time someone attacks any group, it's a violation of TOS under conduct. This isn't only in the comments section, but also with the memes. It's like conservatives often post about the snowflake liberals, and, by the same token, you'll find liberals complaining about conservatives being fascists or Nazis. A friend from a political group on Facebook just did one pointing to a white supremacist neo-Nazi candidate in Illinois that is running, unopposed, in the local congressional primary. (https://imgflip.com/i/242zow) I find it interesting that none of the members of the local Republican Party are willing to stand up and run against him.

"In particular, PLEASE BE CAREFUL when authoring content around sensitive subjects such as politics, religion, and race." [[Caps mine]]

The rule does not forbid, it merely advises caution.

And I can still see the OP's meme, btw.

I can see yours and your comments here as well. You attack conservatives, accusing them as the sole source of ire. You attack the mods, allegeding they allow them to carry on with impunity.
- TOS violations.

Attacking MODs. Sure. but I did not fire the first shot. Attacking conservatives? It's been a while. At you pointed out, if it can be backed up by facts, is it an attack? Closest I came in the above statement is wondering why the local GOP in Chicago hasn't found someone to run against Jones. While he won't kill the GOP, or even do as much damage to it as Hillary did with the Democratic party, you'd think that they would try to put some opposition to it.Heaven help this country if he gets elected to congress.

Another thing about political memes is that once all the users get along, someone with a username of ButthurtPatriot or ProudtobeanAsshole will come around and make a meme about liberals being stupid snowflakes and it'll get 52 upvotes... as well as a war.
