I'm all for the ability to filter out political memes, but if imgflip is going to prevent users from being able to see them as the default setting then it's censorship. This is especially true since the political memers are mostly conservative and the site owners and mods are liberals. Anybody can see that's an attempt to silence conservative voices from being heard. There's been a battle between the users and the mods for a long time in politiflip. The mods just dropped a big bomb.
Free the memes!
