I posted this a while ago and I think it rings true today: imgflip.com/i/2g6xsc
While I understand the reason behind some of the changes lately, some people come to read memes to be entertained and don't want to think about politics, however when majority of your memes are political, why would you make changes to suppress it? From a business standpoint it doesn't seem to make sense.
What also surprises me is that since there are so many political memes, these mods must be aware that it does appear majority of the memers are not "PC" correct and several top memes mocking businesses that coward to PC pressure from bullies. So why would you follow suit?
Lastly, I still can't find any reason as to why some political memes make it through while others do not. And it isn't on a political line I think. I mean, I post a meme with Obama's head on a woman's body and it gets through. I thought that one would be denied. I posted Nike's quote with Hitler's image and it went through, again a surprise. Yet when I posted one that is sound and reasonable about Affirmative Action, denied. Or the one I posted sarcastically reflecting Ford's logic on Feinstein, it gets denied.
My only conclusion is either mods really are apolitical and they allow political posts that just majorly make fun and trash people but deny political posts that actually incites deep thought, or there are some who are left leaning and they allow mocking political posts b/c it is what it is, but the ones that incites thought and change is what really triggers them.
I think it is not a logical move to push majority of your memes/memers into a subsection off the front page. Frankly, I most of my memes get 1-2 likes and most people don't see them anyways, but I think a lot of the motivation regardless of fun or politics for many memes is to get to the front page. Since that is no longer an option for political memes... Looks like the party is over, expect this sites popularity to die down.
