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" ? 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?
ok 1st of all. I was being sarcastic about the doxxing because your complaints seem very one sided. you never call out liberals for such behavior in the group, so I question your sincerity that you're just a peace maker. but if its public info (trump donors) I might disagree with morally trying to blacklist people like Mccarthy did but I dont think it should be against the rules. 2nd, where did I say I am fighting for the ability to call people names?? I said its not against the rules to call a public figure a name like I did. therefore the gif wasnt a "personal attack". banning gifs doesnt take away the ability to name call so whats the point? its against the rules to call MEMBERS names. you seem very confused on this point.
its a matter of opinion whether memes are a stupid way to express ideas. I personaly think they're a concise way to get a point across in the digital era where media is so saturated with info and people have access to so many sources it can be overwhelming and time consuming to read them all. and people read larger quantities of info but its more or less "skimming" these days anyhow.
I'm not here to be a peacemaker... Lol I actually legitimately didn't care what a few movie critics thought about a movie I hadn't seen... So I just went" Yeah, you're right, damn leftists."
And I didn't say anything about the rules, but the gif was calling someone an idiot whether they are in this group or not, and I'm asking what the point is... If you want a group where we rationally debate relevant news, then let's have one...If you want a group where we all act like annoying kids (myself included) then we can have that as well... But let's not act like we expect both at once.
