Due to the constant censorship by the mods, I have decided to leave Imgflip. I am done with my memes being unfeatured because someone doesn't agree with my position or has no sense of humor.
The latest case of this has made me realize that censorship in any form is an attack on free speech.
The Mods unfeatured this meme saying it was harassment. I don't see how that is so since it is from a headline in the news.
If you wish to follow my memes, I will be posting in the politics section on 9gag.com.
I have enjoyed my time here and I want to thank my friends and even some of the people who don't agree with my politics but were polite and were willing to discuss some of the issues that need to have an open dialogue.
Just that mentioning them in that manner in a caption, given how touchy some companies are.
There are memes posted all the time complaining about trans and transgender and transexual and transgender, some rather harshly. How is it that even those characterizing the Obamas in such a way aren't censored?
The sites users lean towards the right. There may be some alt right users, there may some views expressed that intersect with the alt right. IMO, the site isn't alt right and alt right views are not the norm.
Sorry to see you go. You’re a great memer that adds a lot to this community. Imgflip’s management should really stop and take a long, hard look at themselves and ask themselves if they really believe they can stop what people ‘think’ and what they can ‘say.’ You did not threaten anyone. You merely satirized a hypocritical situation. That’s what memes are for! As long as imgflip censors views that they are personally opposed to, they are also limiting themselves as a business and their usefulness to the world outside their own bubble.
It's sad to see you leave, but I totally understand. I have had a lot of problems with censorship on other social media sites like Facebook and YouTube. I quit Facebook and may even quit this site soon. I stopped posting a lot of political memes because they seem to be taking longer and longer to feature. They used to feature in about an hour, but now they take 3-6 hours to feature and no one sees them.
When they separated the politics from the fun section and all the streams started popping up, I left for about two weeks with not even a "goodbye" to anyone and no one seemed to notice. I came back, but haven't been posting as much as I used to because it isn't fun anymore. Censorship is bullshit and every major social media platform is doing it now.
I had noticed you had gone MIA but just figured you were sticking to Fun, since you mentioned something along those lines once (I think?).
I tend to go to memes haphazardly, by following memers from one to another, rather than the front pages, so I don't notice all the latest going ons.
I always enjoy your memes. It's ridiculous that what you mention ever happens. That may be the reason others have also left. Will you be deleting entirely or just taking your business elsewhere?I will visit the website you mention.
Shame to see. Ridiculous to not show content because someone else disagrees with it and Doesn’t want to open up a discussion about it.
Hope to see you back at some point.
5 ups, 3y
I'm still not sure if you're a clown steering the conversation with your A+ memes (this one being another scheme) but I will say this: you're a damn good conservative memer and I will miss your kekful content.
Assuming you're not part of the circus, you should investigate imgflip. Things are not what they seem. Your (and many others) censorship barely scratches the surface.
how did capts compare to Purgeboy? no comparison in my eyes and yet he(pb) got thousands approved and many legit ones of others did not. that is my complaint too. I stopped making political memes, most of my posts lately were older ones, why put any effort in if they wont be approved
Its a mod or pals with a mod or someone hacking a mod to get approval.my bro is 100% sure on it. Its all greek 2 me but he is a pc engineer/code/electrician etc. and used to do work for a game called "unreal tournament" he knows his stuff.
This site is badly in need of transparency.
All mods of the politics stream (i.e. all accounts with mod power & THEIR ALT ACCOUNTS) are to be made public and have to be listed in the stream page to defy arbitrary moderation.
It was one person, now there's copycats. There are also those who have no clue about him yet are attributed to him. One of those is Tedog (hope I spelled that right), who is obviously former user NukeMecca and NOT Purgboi yet had been falsely identified as him after being here under that name for months.
I've been referred to Gab to take a look, where talk about him and the goings on here occur. Tons of the "Don't call me racist" set from here being openly racist there. Purboi is a joke, one that would totally fly beneath the radar and fade into obsolescence if people just stopped giving him attention. "Octo" has become a slang word there.
