No response so I guess there is no real problem. Thanks for doing the above in front of the moderators.
really? so why are you lecturing me on the "no gifs rule" nowhere to be found.

Hey Skip,

can we have a seperate political/current events group open to everyone that allows discussions, debate, gifs, memes and free speech? maybe the only rule being that we need to stay on topic and not derail threads?

haha. no one will have to join who doesnt want to. you can still have your censored group and your liberal current events private group. and my post didnt break the rules except for a gif I didnt know I couldnt post. I want freedom for liberals to post doxxing trump supporter "info-graphics" too. I want freedom for everyone! 😆 you can make fun of whoever you want according to current rules, just not members. you know this, your buddies make fun of the GOP/trump/trump supporters/conservatives all day/all night. MOM2BOYS cant go 2 minutes w/o referring to trump supporters as "brainless, idiots, imbeciles, sheep, idolaters, etc.) but thats ok here because shes not attacking "SPECIFIC" trump supporters in the group. RIGHT???? I didnt make fun of ANY liberals in the group, I made fun of general "leftists" who are outraged by IT 2.

I find it restrictive to have to go to several groups just to see/share memes and gifs. I know several people feel the same.

you know, I would appreciate it if you defined this, please specify.

I’m going to guess that this part is why it was removed.

Seems less like an info graphic and more a way to shame and make fun of people who support Trump which would be instigating in order to start an argument.

You can post an info graphic if it’s actually posted to give information and not used to put people down.

Also, gifs aren’t allowed either so report them if you see them and if you aren’t happy with a mod decision then feel free to pm me about it 😊

I never said that... my question was in relation to your request for a group allowing memes and gifs meant to be rude or vindictive... why do you want one?

um, where did I say I want to use gifs/memes to be mean or vindictive? do you think its mean I used a gif to call the writer of an article an idiot sandwhich when they implied a "homophobic" stephen king novel written in the 1980s is a symtom of "trump's america" ? if I cant use a gif, I can just call them an idiot, there is no rule agaisnt that. the writer is not a member here!

do you or don't you understand that the rule is we cant attack MEMBERS personally? nothing, no rules about public figures/media/entertainers.

go look at the meme group. 99% of all posts are by darkfox aka ksal making fun of/ "being mean" to trump, trump supporters, and conservatives in general. if a meme or gif can be used to express our emotions, convey a message, or illustrate a point related to the topics of the posts I think we should be able to use them. memes are the main form of political expression used in 2019.

Well... you did just say you want the ability of people to post doxxing information about Trump supporters... and you are fighting for the ability to call people names. So it begs the question...

It’s pretty sad if stupid memes are now the main form of political expression, don’t you think?
