Aint Nobody Got Time For That Meme | ACTUALLY BEING CRITICAL OF FILMS WE WATCH INSTEAD OF JUST ZONING OUT AND BEING "ENTERTAINED"? AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT! | image tagged in memes,aint nobody got time for that | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Seriously? Wow. I don't know what to think about you now Soc. Michael Bay films are lazy and mainly visual.

Armageddon, Bad Boys, the Transformers, all shit. They are entertaining the first time and only the first time. That's why Michel Bay sucks as a director. He also made the US military intentionally look bad with all the decepticons in the first Transformers film being military and that one police car. F**k Michael Bay and his subliminal shit talking.

He also already had a deal with GM that he used to make the Autobots all the wrong vehicles. Bumblebee is a VW Beetle. And MB talks shit about that by making the Camaro hit the VW with its door.

Anyways, I just noticed that BB-8 is an obvious reference to Bumblebee and am totally going to use that in a meme. lol :{

"Joke theft"?

The last comedian who stole jokes and got busted for it was Carlos Mencia, and it rightly cost him his career. It's not like a cover band where there's merit in reciting a song correctly- because people almost always know the song being covered. The band is credited. Just reposting a joke--- not everyone's familiar with a joke, and when it's new and not credited, they think the poster made it. That's plagiarism.

It's not claiming credit (these are anonymous usernames), and it's definitely not plagiarism.

Nobody's actually that dumb to look at a meme and think "wow someone posted a meme, that must mean he's claiming it's his original content."

Using someone else's words as your alter ego is plagiarism for the same reason stealing someone else's car while wearing an SPFX mask is still theft.

And yes, I do assume memes are original if I've not been exposed to them before. I don't think this meme would have so many upvotes if people were already familiar with the context and that it came from elsewhere.

The fact that you guys are arguing about it is ridiculous. We've all done it one time or another so leave it alone.

I've never done it deliberately; and I openly declare I made a mistake when I do.
There's an ethic to take into account.

You're being a jerk about it for no reason at all.

There's no ethic to take into account. The whole point of memes being made is to go viral. When someone reposts someone else's meme, they are helping them accomplish that purpose, which means they are doing exactly the right thing. If you have a personal view about how you want to make your own memes, that's fine, but don't expect others to follow your arbitrary rules, and don't make false accusations about ethics violations when they're the ones who are actually doing the right thing. I love when people repost memes, and I wish people did it more often. It prevents good memes (such as this one) from going out of circulation.

Making a false accusation against someone for plagiarism and theft is a very big deal. It's a false accusation. Nowhere is ZSkellington claiming that it is his own work. Without that claim, no plagiarism or theft has taken place.

For someone who chose a philosopher's name, you sure are being thick-headed about it. Plagiarism by definition is theft when the author is not credited. If you don't specifically claim it's not yours, you are implying that it is. If I wrote a book right now, and ripped off someone else verbatim, I could IN NO WAY hide behind the defense, "Well, I didn't say it was mine originally."

The bottom line is, if you want to help a meme go viral, you don't snag someone else's off of a meme site and repost it to a meme site. If going viral is that important, you share it on other social media, and you KNOW it.

No, I don't know it, because it's a false statement you just made up.

A meme going viral does not line up with making limitations like "you should post it here, but not here." If it's popular it's going to be popular.

Pardon me for thinking an artist should at least be credited for their work. Call me old-fashioned, I guess. /spit

Memes are made to be reposts.

You really need to stop artificially imposing false standards on people who are just doing the right thing by reposting and remaking memes.

We're not artists here, and most of what we do isn't our original work anyway.

We take images that aren't our own (for the most part). We put funny captions on them that come from old jokes, bumper stickers, TV and movie lines, or catchphrases from other places on the internet.

To treat memes as if they were original pieces of artwork is to miss the whole point of what memes are for. It's wrong, and leads to confusion and pointless arguments like this one.

Ohhh, so now you're in the RIGHT, are you? A moment ago you were arguing that standards for meme posting were arbitrary, meaning there could be no right or wrong. No, sir, memes are meant to be reposted on sites OTHER than sites meant for CREATING them. This is a COMPETITIVE sight. People are awarded RATING for gaining popularity. That means by deliberately REPOSTING, you are PROFITING YOUR REPUTATION using SOMEONE ELSE'S IDEAS. That is textbook plagiarism. I don't see what's so hard about this.
