Futurama Fry Meme | PEOPLE WERE OFFENDED. | image tagged in memes,futurama fry | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I wasn't of course. But I promise you, there were people who likely took that meme personally. Then they down vote bombed it until it was back to submitted.

The upvotes and downvotes are counted separately, I'm quite certain.

Downvotes wouldn't do that. It would most likely have been a mod decision, which would mean there's no justifiable reason for anyone to complain that it was put back to submitted.

I think cooIIou's observation is correct. If you follow the link, you'll see there was no text added to the meme (look at the image description).

BS like that is why I don't even bother to submit memes anymore. That really sucks, bud. Was it a political meme?

We have assholes downvote bombing memes all the time now. I've had several never get out of submission. No matter how many times I resubmit them

Likely a site admin did it. Follow his link. All he did was copy paste post from somewhere else, no added words or value.

If they never got out of submission, it's hardly likely they were downvote bombed. How would people see them? Instead, that probably just indicates a mod decision not to feature those memes. Not every meme features.

SO if I use it as a comment then submit, the downvotes would have no affect? And the ones that feature for like an hour are downvote bombed right?

oh yeh, you did too. I guess the trick is to hope that the downvote people aren't browsing the latest section.

a meme that already made frontpage can hardly be downvoted to 'submitted' anymore.
The only way for the haters is to flag or file a report to the site-administrators to have it removed.

Because stating that Larry doesn't give a shit what Laura thinks is either sexism or misogyny (they're not the same thing) and "toxic masculinity". (Which is redundant, since feminists think ALL masculinity is toxic).

So sad.
I upvoted your meme and was proud that it performed so extraordinarily well.
This has to stop. Bring down the haters.

You don't read so well do you?

And yes, that meme he linked to show you was definitely on the front page. For a couple of days, in fact.
